theology students thinking together


Our study programmes are designed to equip you to serve Christ in a range of different ways. We believe that mission is strengthened through both reflection and practice. Our aim is to be a learning community that is inspired by real life challenges. For these reasons, our courses deliver training that includes substantial fieldwork and placements. Our staff hub, where we have an specialist 12,000 volume theological library on mission and ministry - The Grogan Library - is located in Parkhead in the east end of Glasgow.
