Theology

While not currently offering degree programs in theology, St. John’s College is pleased to partner with the Anglican Diocese of Rupert’s Land, Canadian Mennonite University, the Centre for Christian Studies, St. Margaret’s Ecclesial University Project, and other partners in offering opportunities for theological study in both formal and less formal ways.

The annual Wilmott Lecture series presents thoughtful and meaningful opportunities to engage in the thought and writing of theologians from around the globe. Dates for the next lecture series, featuring Dr. Janice Soskice, are to be announced.

During the Winter 2019 term, we are co-sponsoring a course on Anglican Theological Foundations. This course is taking place Tuesday evenings through April 6, 6:30 – 9:30 at St. Margaret’s Anglican Church, 160 Ethelbert St. in Winnipeg. Course credit will be granted by Canadian Mennonite University.

We are also sponsoring a non-credit course on “Indigenous History and the Anglican Church,” which runs Thursday afternoons at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Fort Garry from 1:00 to 3:00. Details and registration available through the Diocese of Rupert’s Land at general@rupertsland.ca.

The Council for Theological Education, a joint council of the College and the Diocese, is chaired by St. John’s Warden, Dr. Christopher Trott (Christopher.trott@umanitoba.ca).

Inquiries about theological education at St. John’s College can be directed to the Rev. Heather McCance at mindev@rupertsland.ca. Dr. McCance’s position as Diocesan Ministry Developer for Rupert’s Land is jointly sponsored by the Diocese of Rupert’s Land and St. John’s College.

We acknowledge that we meet and work in Treaty 1, 2, and 3 Lands, the traditional land of the Anishinaabe, Cree and Dakota people and the homeland of the Metis Nation. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land and their hospitality which allows us to live, work and serve God the Creator here.
