NIGHT CLASSES


ENGAGING THEOLOGY

Rev. Dr Myk Habets
25 July - 14 November
Tuesday evenings 6:30-9:30pm
Henderson, Manukau, Christchurch Campuses, Distance Learning

This course aims to introduce systematic theology and teach learners to think theologically. It examines God’s self-revelation, how we can understand that revelation, and why it is foundational for our faith. It then explores the arrangement of this revelation into a set of core beliefs, and their application to everyday living.

This course is also available through Laidlaw At Large as an offering for church groups. Find out more here!



INTRODUCTION TO PREACHING

Ps Reuben Munn
