London Seminary has launched a course for women to start in September this year. The course, called Flourish, will run for nine days of lecturing, study and discussion, spread over the course of the academic year.
It aims at biblical and theological depth, together with practical application. It meets at the seminary site in Finchley, North London. Flourish is for women who want to be more thoroughly equipped to serve. It is designed for women active in ministry in the local church, including ministry wives.
According to London Seminary, the course will cover everything from the doctrine of God, to supporting parents, to responding biblically to our culture. It covers both in-depth theology and practical issues from ministry life.
The course is directed by Julia Jones of Grace Baptist Mission based in Abingdon. Other lecturers on the course include women with considerable experience of women’s ministry: Linda Allcock, Sarah Allen, Ann Benton, Catherine Haddow, Annie Leggett and Leonie Lucas.
There will also be teaching by Seminary lecturers Garry Williams, David Green and Chris Bennett. The morning of each of the nine days of the course will be devoted to biblical and doctrinal study. The afternoons will focus on practical topics relevant to women’s ministry.
