Programmes 

Students have said: "I loved this course - it was exceptionally helpful in my work as an Adult Faith Educator and Sacramental Programme Co-ordinator.  A thoroughly enjoyable course.  Knowledgeable lecturer, use of humour by lecturer and willingness to take time to answer questions, lots covered but it didn't feel pressured - more a sense of being intrigued."
