Do you have a desire to learn?
Manchester Bible School aims to provide accessible courses equipping people with a deeper knowledge and practical applications of the Bible and theology in a context of fellowship. No previous academic qualifications are required – just a desire to learn. This is a great and affordable way to experience an introduction to further theological education.
The courses are suitable for Christians with a basic grounding in the faith, but who want to increase their knowledge of God’s Word to help them in their Christian lives and service. Some courses aim to introduce topics, while others will build on previous courses to deepen engagement with the topic.
Courses are offered on Monday evenings over two 5-week periods; one in the autumn, the other in the spring, from 7:30pm-9:30pm including a mid-session coffee break. They are held in the Emmanuel Centre here at NTC.
Spring 2018 Courses Starts February 26th 7.30pm
Option 1: Judges – Salvation for a Declining Church!
This study of the Book of Judges will explore the key characteristics of a community of faith beginning to spiral into decline, and the abounding grace of God in response, raising up his leaders in response. We explore how those themes both challenge and shape the struggles of the contemporary church.
Course leader: Rev Dr Rob Munro is Rector of St Mary’s Cheadle, a member of the C of E General Synod, chairs the Fellowship of Word and Spirit, and is on the council of the Latimer Trust.
Option 2: ‘For the Life of the World’: Christian Engagement with the World.
How should Christians understand and relate to ‘the world’? Should we reject the world, love the world, serve the world or change the world? This course will explore what the Bible says about the relationship of the Church and the world and ask how the church might be good ‘for the life of the world’.
Course leader: Robert Parkinson BSc, MDiv, MPhil, Minister, Didsbury Baptist Church.
Each course costs £30, or £20 for the unwaged.
