New Study Group in Seahouses
A new study group will meet at the Seahouses hostel between 5:30-8:00pm on Thursday evenings, commencing on 16 September. The group will meet most, but not every week during term time.
Some students will be training for Reader ministry, others will join them in studying for a Durham University award in Theology & Ministry, but most will be Auditors, i.e. studying a range of aspects of theology without engaging in a full programme or completing any assignments.
Here are our modules for the academic year 2010/11:
Introduction to Worship and Preaching*
This is an introductory module not only to worship and preaching and their place in the Church today, but also to the programme as a whole. Auditors will not be expected to preach if they take this module!
