Practical Theology

Practical Theology

Practical theology is where the rubber meets the road. How Christian convictions and ethics play out in daily living.

This subject introduces students to the discipline of Practical Theology in which theory and practice are considered together across a range of areas of ministry, mission, worship and pastoral care. It examines its relationship to the biblical, systematic and historical sub-disciplines in theology. Students will develop an understanding of what is distinctive about Practical Theology and the range of methodologies appropriate to it.

This subject will be taught weekly in the Sulman Room in St Mark’s on Tuesdays 2:00pm to 4:30pm in Session 2 of 2019 (16 July – 15 October). The lecturer for this subject will be Director of St Mark’s Rev’d Dr Andrew Cameron.
