This is the core classroom-based learning. Teaching will mainly be given from participating churches in Greater Manchester; however other speakers from across the UK and overseas will be invited. Understand and know God through his Word as women and men from varied church backgrounds unpack it. Subjects covered will include plenty of practical teaching on the heart of the gospel, church and mission, understanding contemporary society and church history.
The internship track involves the full school classroom time, but with the rest of the week given to serving your local church in a bespoke internship to match your gifting. This gives ample time outside of the classroom for both practical training and experience within various church-based roles. This would be worked out with the leadership team of the church you belong to.
This involves full classroom time, but with the rest of the week given to further in-depth study and additional written assignments. There would be no additional teaching sessions but there would be occasional tutorials for those wanting to follow this track.
This option enables you to continue in your present job on reduced hours or seek a part-time job that supports you financially during the ten months. You might see this as enabling you to study while for example, still doing childcare or running your own business.
The fees for United School of Ministry are set at £250 per term payable on the first day of each term. There are three terms, so it’s an affordable £750 for the year. We really want to make this accessible to as many people as possible.
The teaching will be delivered by women and men who are in leadership in churches across Greater Manchester, in addition to others from wider afield. For more information, do get in touch.
The internship is based with your local church. The two classroom days will be usually spent at King’s House in Manchester City Centre, and then the rest of the week you spend serving in your local church.
Yes, that’s possible. If you needed to work the rest of the week or look after children, it is possible to benefit from all the teaching without being obliged to do an internship or follow the further study track.
The hours on Monday are 9am until 3pm. The Tuesdays are 9:30am to 1pm.
