Theology and Leadership Programmes

St Hild College offers a full range of programmes in theology and leadership at our teaching centres. Our students include: church leaders; curates; interns; children’s, youth and student workers; ministry leaders, preachers and evangelists; and those looking for a thorough grounding in Christian faith and mission. We offer the opportunity to study as part of a mission-focused community, where sharing experience is valued, and learning is tested in context.

Modules and Awards

Our programmes are designed to cater flexibly for the practical requirements and study interests of the individual learner. We offer taster modules in subjects such as Old Testament, New Testament, Greek, Christian Doctrine, and Mission and Evangelism. 

We also offer the following academic awards, validated by Durham University: 

Full-time students need to set aside around 16 hours per week for additional personal study. Part-time students can study at various rates, depending on the pathway chosen. Flexible, non-accredited routes requiring less study time are also available.

Whether studying for the first time or returning to theological study, we encourage potential students to contact us for a conversation about their individual needs.

Teaching Centres

Students opt to be based at one of our teaching centres in SheffieldMirfield or York. Those based at the Barnabas Teaching Centre, Sheffield, can access the monthly missional leadership programme where they reflect with other leaders on their context and on input from local and national practitioners in mission.

All students can access support from our tutorial team. We provide additional assistance for those embarking on theological study for the first time, returning to study after a long break, or for whom English is an additional language.
