The Christ College library is one of the largest Reformed theological libraries in the Southern Hemisphere.

With over 50,000 items (and counting) onsite, along with eJournal databases and eBooks, our library is a great place for researchers, students, ministers, elders, and members of the general public to access resources, or enjoy sipping a coffee over the latest book on practical ministry while soaking in the stunning view of the city skyline. Split over two levels, our library also provides comfortable space for quiet study and for collaborative group work.
