As part of the suite of programmes provided by the Music and Worship department, the Theology and Worship Studies programme is unique in Europe. Key to the programme is the intentional integration of theology and worship studies. Students are offered a wide-ranging curriculum, encompassing training in practical worship ministry (following a music or worship curation pathway), historical studies, fieldwork, and case studies, together with essential theological study.
The programme, offered at Certificate, Diploma and Degree levels, is specifically targeted at those with a keen interest in worship ministry, broadly defined. Applicants might already have some experience, perhaps playing or singing in musical worship, using other artistic forms in worship, or being involved in planning and leading full worship services.
The Theology and Worship Studies programme builds knowledge and practical skills across a broad spectrum of worshipping traditions, styles, and contexts. Students will grow as reflective worship practitioners and scholars and will be equipped for a wide range of career pathways, including worship leading, church ministry, teaching, and further academic study. A range of stimulating module options caters for individual skills and interests.
Faculty members include leading practitioners and thinkers in worship, theology, and related fields. This wealth of experience, combined with a rigorous approach to the integration of worship studies with theological and biblical insights, promises a challenging, but rewarding and enjoyable programme of study.
