Learning Community

 

“learn and grow in order to be better equipped for discipleship and mission”

The Chalmers Learning Community runs throughout the academic year. It gathers Christians from all walks of life and from a variety of vocations, but who share the desire to learn and grow in order to be better equipped for discipleship and mission.

Details are being finalised for the academic year 2022-23. We will be offering a mixture of online and in person courses. For details of our Theology Reading Group please see below. More information on other courses coming soon.

Courses 2022-2023

Theology Reading Group

The Chalmers Theology Reading Group is for those who want to engage more deeply in theology in order to be better equipped to serve the church. Often the modern church neglects the wisdom of the body of Christ in those who have gone before us, wrestling with the major questions, formulating answers and revising those answers over centuries. The Chalmers Theology Reading Group seeks to dive into those theological resources, reading and discussing great texts together in order to learn what we can from them – for the sake of the church today. We believe that rigorous theology is essential for rich practice that builds disciples and fuels mission, so we will always have an eye towards how particular theological writings speak into our context today. 

This year our readings are going to focus on Christology: who is Christ, how should we think rightly about him, how should we worship him rightly, why does this matter? It promises to be a time of rich learning together.

The Reading Group will meet weekly on Friday lunchtimes from 1-2pm for an hour of online discussion of that week’s set reading, covering multiple texts over the course of the year. There will be review sessions between texts in which participants seek to summarise a text and engage with questions directed specifically towards application to the present day. We’ll also use these sessions to read through a very contemporary example of a theologian (Steven Duby, “Jesus and the God of Classical Theism”) who is engaging with these ancient texts.
