What we offer


Study with us
Youth and community work training at SSCM prepares people for a variety of church and community-based work, allowing students to enter into a wide range of roles in the Christian, voluntary and statutory youth and community work sectors when they graduate.
At some point in the early twenty first century our world reached a significant milestone when the global population living in urban areas passed 50% for the first time. The move from traditional, rural life to cities has been a feature of industrialised societies for at least two hundred years, but today urbanisation has become a global phenomenon in which cities in the Southern hemisphere are exploding with unprecedented speed. The urban world of today presents massive challenges, reflected in the attention given to attempts to understand it in a wide range of academic disciplines. The challenge is no less serious and urgent for Christian theology and practice.
