In Semester 2, 2020 we are offering FOUR Christian Studies (formerly Anglican Studies) courses, in association with the accredited provider of these courses, the College of St John the Evangelist, Auckland (also known as St John’s College or SJC).


To introduce students to theology through key concepts and their historical development so that they can reflect theologically and practically on their current contexts. 


Upon successful completion of the course students will be able to:  

  • Discuss key Christian theological doctrines and their historical development. 
  • Describe sources for doing theology and demonstrate how context affects both the questions asked and the answers that emerge.  
  • Evaluate the Anglican theological methods. 
  • Apply theological principles in their engagement with their current contexts. 

Face to face teaching weekend: Friday evening to Saturday afternoon 17th – 18th July, plus 8 online weeks

Registration: by 5pm Friday 29 May 2020. Register by emailing Heather Fraser, Administrator of Theology House, who will supply you with a formal enrollment form.

Cost: tuition fees are zero (thanks to funding from St John’s College) but there is a $50 administration fee for each course, payable to Theology House.

Further Information

Diploma of Christian Studies (NZQA)

Theology House partners with St John’s Theological College, Auckland, in the local delivery of the Diploma of Christian studies.

There are two NZQA approved Diplomas; one at Level 5 and one at Level 6.   St John’s papers are delivered both within the Diocese of Christchurch and by distance so that students may gain a Diploma in two or three years. Participants enrol in the College and the College administers the qualification delivered in the Diocese.

This programme allows you to access learning that is interesting and relevant to your ministry or interest.

You can join the programme to complete the diploma, simply enrol semester by semester, or even for stand-alone papers that interest you or pertain to your ministry area. This programme is designed to work around busy schedules to make the papers as accessible as possible.
