Manchester Bible School

Do you have a desire to learn? Then why not try one of our 5-week evening classes?

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.

Unpacking the Many Victories Jesus Achieved on the Cross.

Why did Jesus have to die on the cross, and not the Holy Spirit, or a prophet? Why did Jesus have to die on the cross, why couldn’t he just preach and then ascend straight into heaven? Why did Jesus die on the cross, why couldn’t his death be quicker and less painful? Exploring these questions together will foster deeper worship of Jesus, and give us more confidence to discuss the many victories he achieved with others.
