Welcome to the Adult Formation webpages.
This section of the diocesan website has information on courses, events and resources for faith formation, catechesis and theological education in Hallam diocese and beyond.
Our mission is to encourage and help anyone and everyone to learn more about and develop a deeper understanding of the Christian faith. We do this through:
- Courses and qualifications such as the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS).
- Public talks and workshops on theology, Church teaching and Christian living.
- Resources such as the Hallam Pastoral Centre library and on-line materials.
- Making use of the skilled lay, religious and ordained people engaged in this work in the diocese and beyond.
- Working with deaneries and parishes to develop learning and resources at the local level.
- Representing Hallam at regional and national bodies.
Anyone is welcome to take part in our courses and events, including people from other Christian denominations, other faiths and people of no faith.
Registration is open for the Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies starting in September 2017
There will be an introductory session in September at the Hallam Pastoral Centre. You can register for the CCRS in advance by contacting us , or simply register on the day at the intro evening.
