Theology for Life

Theology for Life

Theology for Life is a course done by ordinary people, in the midst of ordinary, busy lives. It’s a course done to deepen your thinking, and to help you think about God’s place in your life. If you want something that challenges how you think about God, the Bible, and your day-today life, especially in discussion with others, then this is for you.

Theology for Life is offered by the St Padarn’s Institute. It can be a two-year, four-year, or six-year course, depending on what you are looking for. By doing Theology for Life, you have the chance to earn a certificate, a diploma, or even a degree if you’d like.

For more information, please download the Info Sheet below. It will tell you everything you will need to know about the details of the course.
