NTC Approved for PhD Loans
NTC has received the encouraging news that we’ve been approved for Postgraduate Doctoral Loans.
From September 2019, students will be able to apply for support to help with course fees and living costs, and so this helps to remove a big barrier to PhD study for many potential students. ‘This will really make a difference to a number of students who haven’t been able to pursue research study because they just don’t have the resources,’ commented NTC Dean, Dr Peter Rae. ‘It’s a great step forward – and I think we’re the first of the Theological Colleges to be approved for this.’
This unit explores concepts of Christian social justice from theological, biblical and practical perspectives. It supports students as they deepen their understanding of the complex world we live in, including its many injustices, and encourages engagement for transformation and justice as part of Christian witness.
Happy Birthday Revd Dr Herbert McGonigle, NTC Principal 1986 – 2004
Congratulations to the Revd Dr Herbert McGonigle, who celebrates his 80th birthday today.
Dr McGonigle joined the NTC faculty in 1976, and served as Principal from 1986 – 2004 before becoming the founding director of the Manchester Wesley Research Center. It was 1957 when he arrived at Hurlet Nazarene College as an eighteen year old, having been influenced by the ministry of Revd J B Maclagan who came to preach near his home town of Enniskillen, and he returned to the College after serving as a minister in Walthamstow, in Uddingston, and in Leeds.

Wandering academics and travelling missionaries
It is a pleasure to welcome 2 visiting academics to NTC this summer, Dr Ingrid Reneau Walls and Professor Andrew Walls.
Both are fellows of the Manchester Wesley Research Centre (MWRC) based here at NTC. Professor Andrew describes themselves as “wandering academics and travelling missionaries” that have wandered to NTC to find a place to research, write and utilise the MWRC library.
