On campus – Online – On the Road – In Partnership

Manchester Bible School offers a range of accessible, pre-degree learning options in Biblical Studies, Theology, and Practical Theology. No academic qualifications are required of students – just a desire to learn.

Our MBS learners say:

“These short courses offer very busy and tired people like me to do a bit of study now and then when possible!”
“The level of contribution from other learners was stimulating. The diversity of people was encouraging”
“Thank you for encouraging me to attend. The teaching was dynamic and fun as well as informative”
Manchester Bible School is part of Nazarene Theological College. In keeping with the history of MBS and NTC’s desire to help to shape and equip people for innovative Christian ministry for the 21st Century, MBS courses are pitched at a level suitable for people who want to increase their knowledge of God's Word to help them in their Christian lives and service. MBS is an easy and affordable way to dip your toe into theological education and to explore topics and scripture that interest you.

5-week short courses

Our popular MBS evening courses run three times a year with a choice of topics each term and the option of learning in community on campus at NTC Manchester, or in community live online. No prior academic qualifications, coursework, or assessments!

“I’ve been really enjoying the Monday night sessions, which has served as a welcome bit of ‘breathing space’ in an otherwise extremely busy life.”

Get ready to connect with a community of learners passionate about exploring faith and theology.

Whether you are new to theology or eager to deepen your existing knowledge and experience, our Theological Foundations Course offers a vibrant space for exploration and discussion online and ‘in person’. Sign up to your preferred learning community location and begin your journey. Over a six-month period, you’ll learn, share, and reflect together around a range of themes central to the Christian faith.

The first two weeks of each module focus on learning together as you gather in your chosen regional or online learning community. The latter two weeks equip you to reflect and deepen your learning in relation to your faith and everyday walk with Jesus. At the end of the course and upon completion of all modules and coursework you’ll receive a certificate of attendance during a celebration presentation and recognition in the annual NTC graduation ceremony. You can also use this course to access further studies through NTC Manchester!
