There is always lots going on at Nazarene Theological College
…and more than meets the eye too! Not only do we have our classes but we often host conferences or public lectures. There’s also regular community groups and events that meet here at the College. So stop on by these pages for all the latest goings on!
The Link magazine has been produced for many years as a way of the College keeping in touch with current students, former students, friends, supporters, interested parties and more! It contains news and articles of interest as well as some upcoming events and things to look forward to. With the advent of electronic communication we now have monthly Link emails and special edition printed Links.
Our Summer School this year begins over coffee at 10:30am on Tuesday and draws to a close on Thursday afternoon through the celebration of Communion. Over the three days a range of NTC Faculty and guest speakers, will help us to explore the theme of ‘Prophet, Priest, and King: The Roles of Christ in the Bible’ based on the book of the same title by Timothy Gaines and Lyons-Pardue.
Familiar content, such as updates from NTC Faculty, Health Checks with our health professional, times of worship, prayer, and opportunities for rest remain a part of the programme.
In addition, two of our wonderful NTC volunteers, Ruth Copeland-Holtz and Reverend Doug Cooney, will also be on hand through the week if you would find it helpful to talk with someone or to book an appointment with Ruth for a counselling session.
This year our Wednesday afternoon is quite relaxed with space for reflection, coffee, and time to socialise (or sleep!). For those who prefer to keep active in a different way, we have Health Checks and two seminars that you can opt into. Resources for these will be available digitally so if you prefer to nap or natter instead you won’t miss out completely.
We hope that this will be a rich time of learning together and are looking forward to seeing you all.
