Registration re-opening soon!

One of the often-heard objections to faith in Christ is that it is old fashioned or outdated, a relic of the distant past and therefore easily discarded. After all, what could a two thousand year old faith have to say to us in the twenty-first century?

This class seeks to address this question. In short, what could a two thousand year old faith have to say to us? A lot! For those of us who are a part of the Christian Church, our history is not something to be discarded as foreign, or cut-off from our time. No, church history is a recognition that all that the Church is today, has been informed, shaped, and influenced by what has gone before. So, to investigate church history is to dig the depths of who we are, and as we do, it is my hope that we come to a better understanding of what it means to be faithful to Jesus in our own day.

Welcome to NTC online: Reading the Bible

This short course paves the road for you to engage with confidence and curiosity with this quest of interpretation. It is not a series of lectures about the Bible, but rather it is about learning to read the Bible, on your own, with others, and with Christ. The format of this course is personal and practical, makes space for reflection, and opens up a whole new world of discovery both for long-term Bible readers and for those who have just started.

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.

 

ONLINE, Monday and Wednesday evenings 1st November – 1st December

Theology of Lament and seeking the well-being of the community

Online, Monday 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th November, 19:30-21:30 

Lifelong Learning Code for Nazarene Pastors: 99930

Course Overview: Laments are a crucial part of life’s journey. Lament causes us to listen deeply and respond anew with hope as we seek the shalom of the wider society.

This class is suitable for someone who wants to explore what it means to seek the wellbeing of the city (Jeremiah 29:7) and bring hope instead of brokenness. In the Christian life pain is part of our discipleship and prophetic witness as we anticipate new possibilities. We will look at the scriptures and in conversation explore what it means for our contexts. We value conversation and questions in all our classes and Powerpoint presentations will be used to support learning through this class.

Course Leader: Dr Marijke Hoek is pastoral worker in South Manchester Family Church and guest lecturer. She is involved in the development of new community projects and passionate about communicating the good news in the media, and is Co-editor of Micah’s Challenge and Carnival Kingdom.

Online, Wednesday 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th November and 1st December, 19:30-21:30

Lifelong Learning Code for Nazarene Pastors: 53653

Course overview: When alternatives abound, how do we know that faith in Jesus is the ultimate reality, and that faith in Him is the only sure foundation for life? This largely exegetical course will explore John’s letters so as to hear and apply their challenge to contemporary church and our own personal faith. This will be a great course for anyone seeking to better understand the Scriptures and apply them; particularly those who lead, preach, or teach others.

Course leader: Rev Dr Rob Munro. Rob has been Rector of Cheadle Parish Church for the last 18 years – the church where he was converted in his teens. He is a member of the C of E General Synod, and various charitable trusts, mainly pursuing his passion of bringing contemporary reformed theology to the wider church.

Course overview: Exegesis for the Pulpit aims to help potential or practicing preachers bridge the gap that sometimes exists between solid biblical study and the craft of effective preaching. Homiletics deserves full attention as we navigate the challenges of the postmodern world that are particularly relevant in Europe and across the Western world as a whole.  How do we faithfully and creatively communicate the Word of God amidst the often-competing ideas, concepts, and practices that are swirling around and within the church today? This course will stimulate, encourage, and equip people who want to hone the necessary disciplines of preaching that impacts the contemporary world.

Course Tutor: Revd Dr Wesley White

Wesley (Wes) White lives in Glasgow, Scotland. He has been married to Cynthia for 37 years. He holds a PhD in theology from the University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana, USA, and a DMin in preaching from Denver Seminary, Denver, Colorado, USA. Wes teaches part-time at the Nazarene Theological College in Manchester.
