Diocesan Certificate in Christian Studies
This is open to anyone interested in studying theology - looking into faith and belief in different ways from a normal Bible Study.
It is a course of 30 weeks divided into 6 modules, each of 5 weeks. The modules are titled as: Introduction, Old Testament, New Testament, Doctrine (what we believe), Ethics and Liturgy (how we worship together). Each module has an assignment, and although these are not compulsory, most people enjoy doing them and get great satisfaction from their achievement. Whilst theoretically it is possible to study individual modules the intention is that this is a whole course. Those who complete the course will be awarded a certificate, presented at an evening service in the Cathedral.
