Chichester Cathedral Online Theology Course this Winter/Spring

Recommended by Jan Matthews and Michele Boys who participated in the last course and found it very interesting and well led. 

Note from Canon Daniel Inman, Chancellor of Chichester Cathedral:

As previous participants in both our Old Testament course and also the Advent Quiet Day, I'm pleased to let you know about the online New Testament course starting later in the month. I'm sorry it's not starting sooner but, despite my best intentions, I didn't do as much reading around it over the Christmas break, having been rather absorbed in some writing instead, and my brain needs a few weeks to warm up. However, we will kick off on a very similar format on the 25 January and I hope will sustain our brains as we wait for our vaccinations.

Each session, as usual, lasts one hour and participants are sent optional reading and online resources for private study to accompany their progress through the course. Led by me (although I am hoping for a high-profile guest speaker for one of them!), each session is a lecture with Powerpoint but with space for some questions at the end. The Old Testament course had on average of 70 participants from across the Diocese and beyond and you're not expected to contribute and will not be assessed (which seems to be an attractive prospect for many). All are welcome. Even if people can’t participate on the day, videos are available subsequently for those who sign up and I make a range of online resources available to you all. If you’d like to register for the course this term, please enter your details on this Google Form here, which makes life a lot easier for me:
