Certificate in Christian Studies – an introduction to the Christian Faith

Once again, the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross will be offering the Certificate in Christian Studies. This is a two-year part-time course for those who wish to explore the Christian faith in greater depth and to understand its relevance in our lives and within in the communities of which we are a part. The course covers scripture, theology, church history, ethics, liturgy and ministry.

It is open to anyone who wishes to grow in their understanding of the Christian faith, as well as fulfilling the requirements for those who wish to offer ministry as a Lay Reader in the Diocese. The modules are led by clergy in the Diocese and the classes are interactive, with plenty of scope to learn through interaction and dialogue. Each module consists of six interactive lectures, with an assignment at the end, to help reflect on the learning that has taken place. The course will consist of both online and in-person learning at Northridge House Education Centre in Cork. The classes will take place in the evening with the starting date for the first module on 28th September 2023.

The Certificate in Christian Studies is a Level 7 Certificate Course and is accredited by St Patrick’s Pontifical University, Maynooth.

For more information please email the Diocesan Further Education and Training Officer, the Rev. Terry Mitchell.
