Short courses for Church people

The School of Divinity offers two short courses for Church people, lay or ordained.

The courses will be run in partnership with the Faith Nurture Forum of the Church of Scotland, the Presbytery of Edinburgh and the Scottish Episcopal Institute. They are led by experienced academics and practitioners.

This semester we will run one course: Training for Leading Worship in a Local Context. It will take place at New College and will involve six evening classes and two Saturday gatherings.

The course is accredited at SQA Level 7 for 10 credits. To be awarded credit, students must successfully complete a final assignment. It is also possible to take the course 'not for credit' and in that case there is no assessment.

The course fee will be £200, whether for credit or not.

Training for Leading Worship in a Local Context

This course will be of interest to those who wish to explore the possibility of leading worship in their local church setting. It will focus on the history, theology and structure of worship services in a variety of styles, in order to ground current practice in its wider context.

Classes will take place from September-December 2022. The course will involve six evening classes (Thursday 6-8pm) and two Saturday afternoon gatherings.

The course is open to all. Participants are likely to be active in their local Church. The course is organised by Rev Professor Susan Hardman Moore.
