Union School of Theology and Church Society are delighted to announce the launch of the Priscilla Programme, a new training course for women, from September 2018.
‘…when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.’ Acts 18:26
The Priscilla Programme is designed for women who serve their local churches in voluntary ministries. Following the pattern of Priscilla in Acts 18:26, it helps women to learn how to teach other women 'more accurately', care for others more biblically, and be better prepared to give reasons for their faith and hope. Priscilla and her husband, Aquila, travelled with Paul, supported his ministry, and learned from him how to instruct others in the faith. This kind of volunteer ministry is still essential in contemporary church life.
If you lead a Sunday school group, teach a Bible study, are involved in pastoral visiting, or any other kind of ministry that you would like to be better equipped for, the Priscilla Programme is for you! The Priscilla Programme is a completely online course but studied along with others in community. It is oﬀered by the Church Society in partnership with Union School of Theology.
I’m thrilled that Church Society are partnering with Union to offer top quality training to women who are keen to learn God’s Word and God’s ways, and enthusiastic to serve God’s people. I can’t think of anyone better than Ros Clarke, a clear and compelling speaker, to deliver this teaching and training so I’m very excited about the launch of The Priscilla Programme.
Revd Dr Lee Gatiss, Director of Church Society
The Priscilla Programme is an exciting new collaboration which we believe will strengthen the Church. As a body, we need gifted women to teach and lead with theological depth and biblical faithfulness. So many areas of church life will be enriched if we can raise up more Priscillas who love Christ and care about his people. We are thrilled to partner with Church Society and Ros Clarke in this vision.
Revd Dr Michael Reeves, President of Union School of Theology
