School of Theology
Bridging the gap between church and seminary
Join us each month for our School of Theology as we delve into practical, biblical and systematic theology with the help of experienced speakers such as Revd Drs Ian Hamilton, Geoff Thomas, and Bill Schweitzer.
Students can enrol online or attend classes in person at All Saints Presbyterian Church. We offer a Certificate in Theological Studies for those who successfully complete the course and related assignments.
The curriculum will cover the major tenets of the Christian Faith, give an overview of the Old and New Testaments, and delve into issues facing Christians in the 21st century. Aspects of Systematic, Biblical and Applied Theology will be taught. It will mean delving deeper into God’s rich word! We are delighted to offer a discounted Banner of Truth bookstall.

The School of Theology offers a good opportunity to study and discuss different topics related to Christian faith, both theological and practical. Since the School is available online, you can join from wherever you are.
As a church elder and doctor, the School of Theology has opened up whole new areas of theology that I have never considered in such depth before. It has been a joy to listen to these challenging talks with brothers and sisters who share a hunger to know our great God better.
The School of Theology has been great, applying rich theology to practical, everyday issues with biblical clarity and warmth. I have loved tuning in online, and am grateful for the generous provision made for students!
