If you are active in ministry, in any context, and want to deepen your practice then consider enrolling in our new postgraduate course Reflective Practice for Ministry. You will learn to critically reflect on yourself, your experience, and your context, and develop practices and habits of mind that will allow you to flourish over the long-term. The course is delivered through a range of  seminars, workshops, reflections and fieldwork activities, and all learning is grounded in the student’s own ministry context.
