CSTM offers an entry-level experience of theological study to people who want to deepen their Christian discipleship, increase their knowledge of the Bible, church history and teaching, and theology, or who might be exploring a sense of calling to ordained or licenced ministry.
The course is a three-year rolling programme, which covers a range topics, all at an introductory undergraduate level. Teaching takes place 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.
