The Certificate in Christian Ministry (Internship) (CertCM) provides Christian churches and their agencies with people who can support and enhance their communities and ministries. Students in the CertCM develop knowledge, skills and experience by connecting their own reflection on the Christian faith with real life practical contexts, equipping them for service in the church and wider contexts.
