Theological education can fit into your life. We want to make theological study a possibility for every disciple of Jesus. At Christ College, all courses and programs are available in part-time study mode. We also offer intensives and evening classes. That means you get access to the best in theological education—in a way that works for you.

Our flagship programs embody our mission. Each program is designed to meet the unique needs of the Australian Church.

Course of Training for Ministers and Deaconesses

Want to minister in the Presbyterian church? As the theological institution affiliated with the Presbyterian Church of NSW, Christ College is your pathway to ministry.

Christ College Internship

Our internship is a three-year field experience learning program. Christ College, with our partner churches, provides the practical and theological training you need to begin a life of ministry.

Leadership is the single greatest influence on the health and growth of Christ’s Church. In this program, Dr Jonathan Pratt combines Reformed theological convictions with evidenced-based leadership principles. Time and time again, we have seen this course transform lives and churches.
