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. 

St. John's College is a proud co-sponsor of "Emerging Perspectives on Ministry," a two-day conference gathering church leaders for reflection on what is exciting about ministry today. The event will take place May 7 and 8, 2019 and will feature scholar and author Diana Butler Bass as keynote. See https://www.cmu.ca/community.php?s=emergingperspectives for information or to register.

St. John's College and the University of Winnipeg are thrilled to present Dr. Deacon Diarmaid MacCulloch for a public lecture on "Sex and the Church" on the evening of Tuesday, October 1st. Dr. MacCulloch is the author of eleven books and host of three BBC series on church history. More details will follow.

During the Fall 2019 term, we will co-sponsor a course on Liturgical Theology with Canadian Mennonite University (who will be granting the course credit). Watch this space for more details as they are finalized.

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. Dr. 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.
