Study theology in Southampton

In partnership with St Mellitus College

Starting 24 September 2019, we will once again be streaming weekly teaching from St Mellitus College, one of the most exciting and innovative centres of theological study and training for missional leadership in the UK today. Based at Ascension Church, and run in partnership with Winchester Ministry Experience Scheme we will be streaming a selection of lectures from modules on the St Mellitus BA course in ‘Theology, Ministry & Mission’.

By offering this 30 week course locally, unassessed and as inexpensively as possible, we hope to make this high-quality training (delivered by a wide range of world-class scholars and first-rate practitioners) to anyone who wants to explore their faith, stretch their mind, and expand their heart.



Teaching will take place on Tuesday evenings at 7pm during term time, with refreshments available from 6:45pm. All sessions will begin with a time of prayer and worship, and include regular refreshment breaks. The evening should finish around 9:30pm.

There will be no teaching on half term and bank holiday Monday weeks.

Term dates to be announced.
