This course is a great way to explore and grow in faith and be part of a learning network. Offered by Cuddesdon, Gloucester and Hereford in partnership with the Diocese, it has an overall aim to support and equip Christian disciples to become more effective signs of God’s kingdom.
People attend the course for a variety of reasons; from exploring a call to ordained or licenced ministry in the Church of England, to wanting to ‘find out more’. The course is enjoyed and helpful for those wishing to better serve local congregations and communities and also for those who already have a specific role within the church, such as Worship Leader, ‘Open the Book’ team member or PCC member.
The learning journey develops biblical study and interpretation and helps connect the Bible and theology to life experiences.
Teaching is through structured study, informal discussion and fellowship.
One of our students told us:
‘My vicar suggested that it might be a good idea for me to attend. I am absolutely loving the course, it is not only incredibly interesting, but also enables one to explore and understand our Christian faith at a much deeper level’.
This is a one year part-time course run from St Mary de Crypt in Gloucester, taking place during evenings spread across three ten-week terms. For further information about the course contact:
