Ministry Training Courses

The UK comprises a number of Gospel Partnerships, within which various training courses are run for everyday Christians. These cover biblical studies, basic theology, ethics and apologetics, Bible handling, ministry skills and the like.

I am employed part time by the Sussex Gospel Partnership to assist in teaching on its courses. Details can be found here. If you live in or near Sussex, do consider enrolling. If you don't, and there is nothing similar near where you live, you could consider the Moore College distant learning courses.

Below, I will add links intended to help those on the course I teach, but that may be useful to others too. These are very selective. And my lecture notes will only be included where they are particularly full.
