Join the Course in Christian Studies in 2024

The CCS course is a two-year foundation course exploring the Christian faith with other learners from across our diocese. The course is changing for 2024 and will begin in January. There will still be 12 modules split over 2 years.
The first year will be based on Foundations in Theology - exploring Bible Study, Doctrine and Church History. The second year will focus on Foundations in Ministry, giving students an opportunity to explore vocational aspects of ministry such as Pastoral Care, Spirituality and leading services. The two years may be taken sequentially or separately.
The CCS webpages on the diocesan website will also be updated with information about the 2024 course in the coming weeks.
