“Lectures are always delivered to the highest standard, and there is always someone ready to listen to you and to support you .”

Dulcie – 3rd Year Student

Overview

The Community Ministry specialist stream on our BA (Hons) degree in Practical Theology is the one to choose if you have a passion for a particular area of ministry or enjoy pioneering new ways of working with communities.  Previous students have been involved in running a foodbank, worked with asylum seekers or those who are homeless.  We equip you with a range of transferable skills that enable you to work in a range of missional and ministry settings where you can pursue your passion and develop your vocation.   You will study alongside students following different specialisms which is an enriching opportunity to both offer and receive insights which enhance your learning in practice.  We work with students who come already knowing where they hope their placement will be but also can help you find somewhere that works for you.

Academic and Pastoral Support

You will receive support from a dedicated line manager and other colleagues within these contexts, as well as a dedicated team within the theological college who oversee all aspects of your studies.

Alongside the interactive lectures and seminars, you will be part of a facilitated peer formation group and are supported internally by a personal tutor and externally by an experienced practitioner in the field.
