Evangelism

Trinity in Town Geraldton

Inspired by Trinity at Night

“After experiencing the faithful proclamation of Christ in the teaching in the Trinity at Night courses and the guidance of mentors, I chose to study for my MDiv at Trinity. The teaching and guidance of the staff and lecturers has been extremely valuable and not only am I learning about Christ, but I am encouraged to grow and be built up in Christ Jesus in all areas of my life. At the completion of my studies, I would like to work in pastoral ministry.”

Where They Happen

Our CCS courses are run as Trinity at Night within the Perth Metro area and Trinity in Town in WA Country areas. If you’d like to know more, or would like to partner with us in delivering Certificate studies courses in your church, contact us today!

Trinity at Night

Trinity at Night normally runs as evening classes from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm on Tuesdays or Thursdays, over a 6 week period.

If you are new and not sure whether these units are for you, please contact the CCS Coordinator and ask about our ‘taste and see’ option. This allows you to attend the first class completely free of charge with no obligation. If at the end of the first class you are keen to continue, we can transfer you to a full enrolment and process payment. Please note that this is a once only option and cannot be used for the first class per unit.

Trinity in Town

Trinity in Town units are usually run in country WA as an intensive day unit. We partner with local churches or organisations to deliver a fun, interactive, in-person experience.

YOUR STUDY OPTIONS

At the completion of each unit, you have the option to complete an essay in order to gain credit towards one of our Certificates in Christian Studies.

While we encourage students to have a go at completing an essay as a way of digging deeper, you are very welcome to attend, learn, be encouraged, and leave the essay writing to others!

Further information is available in the Student Handbook.
