There are two student intakes at SBC – our main one in September, but also one in late January. You can join us in January on our full degree programme OR for any of the individual modules that are being taught. In the coming term you may be interested in the following entry level modules:

The Practice of Pastoral Care – an essential module exploring the basic principles and practices of Christian pastoral care for others, in action and relationship, communally and individually. This module introduces pastoral care as a ministry of faith, hope and love. Specific areas of pastoral practice covered in this module include accompanying the dying and bereaved; care for the depressed person; celebrating love and marriage; pastoral prayer; and means of grace such as Bible, public worship, Holy Communion and baptism. Delivered on-campus on Tuesday mornings (10am-12:30pm) and online via Zoom on Tuesday evenings (7:30-9:30pm).

Christian Leadership – a vital class for anyone in or thinking about leadership in any capacity. It’s not simply a “how-to” but a depth-look at different models and values associated with leadership as well as the opportunity to reflect upon your own approach to leadership in light of your personality and character. Delivered on-campus on Thursday mornings (10am-12:30pm) and online via Zoom on Thursday evenings (7:30-9:30pm).
