The RTC offers short courses throughout the year so as to equip people for Christian life and local church ministry. They are open to anyone – you don’t need to be academically inclined to attend!
Most courses are held on Tuesday evenings over a five week period. Occasionally we host one-off events like we had in August 2016: Christian responses to Islam.
Short courses offer the opportunity to:
- Get to know and love God more through study of his Word.
- Enjoy learning from some great teachers, including past RTC faculty and guest lecturers who are experts in their field and full of valuable experience and ideas.
- Discover new areas of Christian study you have not pursued before.
- Meet and enjoy fellowship with Christians from other churches.
- See what it’s like to study at the college.
- Join a forum to workshop ideas relating to your faith.
- Develop skills that will help you live well as a Christian in our culture, confident in knowing what you believe and able to respond to the questions your friends or family might have.
The enrolment process is simple. Just fill out the form below and click through to the payment portal.
RTC Short Course - Term 3 2017
STARTS 25 JULY FOR 5 TUESDAY EVENINGS
People, Places & Politics: The Protestant Reformation in Context
In the sixteenth century, people of theological and social conviction started a series of religious reformations that changed the world. As we celebrate the 500th anniversary of these events, it is vital for Protestants to recapture their heritage and better understand the history of their tradition. Using a mix of biography, history, and political ideas, this course will offer an overview of the Protestant Reformations and their importance for the church today.
