What It Is
A few years ago, CCM started a School of Theology where we would gather people for one Saturday morning per month and help them grow deeper in their understanding of theological topics and the Biblical story.
Our goal was for it to be accessible. We wanted to make sure it would fit alongside the busy lives that many people lead, and we wanted it to serve not just ‘theology types’, but Christians with a whole range of backgrounds, personalities and interests.
Each month we bring in a different top-notch speaker, drawing on specialists from across the country, who spend half of the morning going in depth on a section of the Bible (we cover the entire Bible over the course of two years) and the other half of the morning exploring what the whole Bible says about a particular theology topic.
Since we started the School of Theology in 2018, around 200 people from 25 local churches have completed the program, and other schools of theology have started around the country using this model as a template.
Each session will start at 9am and will run until 12:30pm.

This theology training course is fully paid for by Christ Church Manchester and therefore is free to applicants. The sessions each build on each other and so the course works best if you can commit to being at as many of the sessions as you are able to.
“Here at School of Theology we want to equip people to understand God’s word more, be inspired by it and have lots of fun in the process. We believe studying theology is fun and accessible and we want everyone to have the privilege of delving deep in study of the Bible.”
