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.

Venue: Emmanuel Centre, Nazarene Theological College, Dene Road, Didsbury, M20 2GU

Times: 7:30pm-9:30pm including a mid-session coffee break.

We look forward to seeing at Manchester Bible School.

Real Change: Becoming More like Jesus in Everyday Life

Whether we are new Christians or mature, we all have areas of our lives which need transforming. Some of us tend towards anger or impatience, others towards jealousy or discontent. Some of us struggle with addictions and, in different ways, all of us still harbour pride in our hearts. God is not planning on leaving us this way!

As Philippians reminds us, God is going to bring to completion the good work he has already begun in us (Phil 1:6). But how does this process of change work?

Based on the “three trees” model from CCEF, Real Change is a course for anyone who wants to find out how the gospel changes us from the inside out – anyone who wants to take a look at what is going on in their heart and grow with God’s help to see Real Change.

A broken prophet, a community in crisis, a weeping God – Nowhere else in the Bible can we meet these three elements in such fervour and depth as in the Book of Jeremiah. What does it mean to speak for God, in word and in person? How does healing come to God’s people? And how does God listen and speak in the midst of a crisis? Journeying through the complex literary and theological world of Jeremiah, we will wrestle with these questions and sharpen our skills in reading prophetic literature, theological thinking, and Christian application.

Course Leader: Dr Samuel Hildebrandt, Lecturer in Biblical Studies (Old Testament) at Nazarene Theological College. His research covers a wide range of Old Testament materials, but is focused primarily on prophetic literature, the poetry of the Psalms, and the dynamics of Hebrew narrative.
