Church Society and Union School of Theology have launched the Priscilla Programme, a new training course for women, which will start from September 2018.
The Priscilla Programme is intended to encourage and equip women to serve local churches in voluntary ministries, such as teaching Sunday school and leading Bible study groups.
According to a newsletter from Church Society, the content will include in-depth biblical, theological and pastoral modules, delivered by experienced and trained women. There will be regular interactive seminars and individual tutorials, as well as video lectures and other downloadable content.
It is designed to be accessible and affordable, with all the teaching delivered online. The course will be led by Dr Ros Clarke, associate director of Church Society.
