CSTM covers a range of topics at an introductory undergraduate level to people who want to deepen their Christian discipleship, increase their knowledge of the Bible, church history and theology, or who might be exploring a sense of calling to ordained or licenced ministry.
The course is a three-year rolling programme so that you can start at the beginning of any term and sign-up term-by-term. Teaching takes place fortnightly on five Thursday evenings and one Saturday study day in each term. Students have the opportunity to engage with the life of Cuddesdon’s vibrant College community and make use of its considerable resources.
Those who wish to do so can submit written work for the Cuddesdon Certificate in Theology and Ministry or accreditation with the Durham University Common Awards programme, either of which can then be used as a basis for further study. Not all students do this, however – many choose simply to attend lectures for their own personal interest and development.
Whether for interest only, or to earn the Cuddesdon Certificate, CSTM offers an opportunity to learn more about the Christian faith, to ask questions and to develop one’s own skills for discipleship, all within a friendly, prayerful and supportive environment.
At the start of each academic year, there is a no-obligation, free-of-charge, half-day Introductory Session providing information on the practical aspects of the course and assessment, together with an introduction to the study of theology and the relationship between theology and personal faith. If you would like to book on the next Introductory Session on Saturday, 3rd October 2020 from 10am to after lunch, please contact the Course Administrator, details below.
