As a community formed by faith in Jesus we like to stretch our knowledge and skills to better serve one another. For this reason, St Jude’s runs a number of courses to help people engage in our community. Some of the courses are geared towards understanding the Bible, such as PTC (Moore College Preliminary Theological Certificate course).

Other courses are for those new to the Christian faith like Christianity Explored.

These courses are run throughout the year. As a church we seek to be professional and transparent in all we do, and so all people who serve are required to attend the Safe Ministry Workshops.

If you would like to join any of these programs of training, please contact us and will assist you.
