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) and the Loyola Certificate in Pastoral Minstry.
- Supporting Church initiatives such as the Year of the Word: God Who Speaks.
- 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.
The department offers several national and local courses for faith formation and theological education, and promotes and support Church initiatives with local programmes. We also have links to other providers in the UK and beyond.
The department has a range of books, leaflets and multimedia resources available for use by parishes and groups. Our staff are also available to help lead and plan adult formation events, and to advise on suitable resources, courses and adult education opportunities. It also includes links to resources from other sources and multimedia recommendations for individual, group or parish use.
