Pop-Up Theology
Pop-Up Theology

Pop-Up Theology is born from a deep conviction that engaging with theology is a priority for all Christians, not the few. We study theology in order to know and love God more & to share our faith with confidence. At St Mellitus College we believe theology should be accessible to everyone, without geographical, academic, social or economic barriers. Pop-up Theology is designed so that everyone can gain confidence in their ability to engage with theological study, even those who may have not previously thought it possible. Now offered as a weekly Monday evening programme, currently on zoom, with both class and small-group discussions in the interactive teaching led by St Mellitus College staff, this is a fantastic opportunity to grow in your knowledge of and love for the Lord

Curriculum
The Bible: Journeys of Faith

Our next module is all about the theology of faith. Where does it come from? How can it be a substance? How does it work? How does faith make us work? How can we grow our faith? What happens when we have faith the size of a mustard seed? What about doubt and questioning?  What about those of us who believe we have little faith? These are just a  few of the questions we will be looking at over an eight week module facilitated by the St Mellitus staff.

In this module you will:
  • appreciate a New Testament overview of faith
  • examine some OT characters who exercised faith
  • reflect on ways we can practically live out our faith in today’s world
  • be inspired through church history throughout the ages, including contemporary stories from Salford and Congo
  • be more prepared to write your own story of faith
Aims
  • To engender a deeper love for God and his word
  • To inspire within students a desire for more learning and theological study
  • To equip the student for hands-on service in their local church context for the benefit of the world
  • To see more radical thinking with regard to the student’s  personal faith
