The teachers: our local course instructors use DVD-based material from St Paul’s Theological Centre in London, Ravi Zacharias Ministries and Regent College, Canada, with teaching by highly respected theologians. The instructors then bring the sessions alive with thoughtful discussions and opportunities to interact with other students, to get the most out of each class. Our instructors create a welcoming and safe environment, where everyone can participate, regardless of educational experience.
The sessions: Each session starts with a time of reflection and features a fascinating and engaging lecture, with opportunities to discuss, ask questions and think about how the things we're learning might shape the way in which we live as Christians. A coffee break in the middle provides space to get to know one another while in-class exercises will help you apply the learning to everyday life.
Cost: Saturday £90 (£50 unwaged); Tuesday £60 (£35 unwaged)
