God's Mission and the Old Testament

We are all tempted to think of mission as a New Testament thing.  In this module we seek out the God of mission by looking at how the five marks of mission have their roots in the theology of the Old Testament.  We will explore God's promises to Abraham and Sarah, why the law is a gift for mission, as well as exile, creation and more.

Introducing Christian Ethics

Jesus taught us to love one another and to love our neighbour as ourselves.  But what does that mean in the messiness of everyday life?  How are we to understand the ethical teaching of the Bible? In this module you will explore the ethical framework of the Bible and think about what it means for how we should live, respond to issues and engage with the world.

Digital Issues Facing Christians Today

Wherever you turn it seems data is everywhere. Banks and Google collect your data. Tripadvisor texts you where to go for your next holiday, and Facebook and Twitter help you follow your favourite actors, musicians and speakers.  Yet the impact on faith seems to be unclear.  This module aims to help people to explore the value and challenges of technology for Christians in a digital age.
