Daniel, BA in Applied Theology

Student testimonials

“I started the Moorlands College at the age of 24 and began on the Foundation Year course. I wanted to come to Moorlands to know more about God. And the Lord, through His people and by His Spirit, has truly transformed my character. The Lord has given me a fresh revelation of His Cross, and His Cross has changed me. It has changed each and every one of us. Come to Moorlands College, be transformed, be loved and encouraged, and be used to impact the world for the glory of God.” — Daniel, BA in Applied Theology


Trudi, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Trudi M

“I looked at different colleges, but decided that Moorlands was right for me because of how friendly the college is, and the way the course would fit in well with my family commitments. Starting at the Midlands Regional Centre, I had many fears and worries; about being a mature student, understanding the modules and coping with the workload, but through the support of the tutors, lecturers and fellow students I’ve accomplished far more than I could ever have imagined.” – Trudi, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


David, Foundation Year

David

“My Foundation Year at Moorlands College has been a wonderful experience. One that has given me confidence that a now 53 year old man can look forward to starting his first year on a BA at Moorlands. The Foundation Year has brought together all the key relevant skills I needed such as knowing the basics of the world of essay writing and of footnoting and references. The tutors are as approachable and patient as I could wish for.” – David, Foundation Year


Megan, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Megan

“Studying the BA in Applied Theology (Youth and Community Work) provided me with numerous opportunities to feed the God-given heart I have for young people. I am so thankful that God called me to Moorlands College and I cannot wait to see him continue to do amazing things in my life, and in the lives of the young people I’ll meet.” – Megan, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


Joanna, MA in Applied Theology

“I was drawn to the MA course because of its emphasis in Applied Theology. I have only ever been interested in how theology not only influences one’s own behaviour but also how theology can help us all deal with the world around us. This course was ideal for me because it allowed me to study at the right level, adding value to my previous education history and as it is part-time it enables me to continue with the rest of my life at the same time.

My time at Moorlands College has equipped me in ways I had never imagined. I have a new job as a Youth, Children and Families Development Worker working across seven churches. When I walked through the door on the Open Day, I felt so welcome and loved in this special place. I knew it was where God had called me to be.”  – Joanna, MA in Applied Theology 


Osimar, BA in Applied Theology

Osimar G

“One of the things I find very important about Moorlands College is the way it embraces you. You are welcomed the way you are, regardless of your age, your culture, or the way you believe. Moorlands is a family and you are accepted as a member of this big family.” – Osimar, BA in Applied Theology


Susan, MA in Applied Theology

MA testimonial

“After 30 years of a career in learning and development, I left full time work and signed up for the MA in Applied Theology at Moorlands College. It has been a joy to be on the receiving end of such rigorous, challenging, inspiring teaching. I have deeply appreciated the wisdom and professionalism of the tutors and been blessed by the skills and experience of my fellow MA students. It has been a walk of learning, personal growth and deepening of faith. Thank you Team Moorlands. A great place to study and amazing folk to study with.” – Susan, MA in Applied Theology


Scott, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Scott

“Studying BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work has greatly widened my understanding and perspective of full-time youth ministry. It provided time for deep reflective practice, as well as a chance to gain wisdom from both peers and professionals in a fun and engaging environment.” – Scott, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


Hannah, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Hannah, BA

“I came to Moorlands College eager to serve God and His Church. The excellent teaching at Moorlands has played a key role in consolidating who and what I truly believe – not through spoon-feeding, but by being taught how to build solid arguments which has now informed my practice. I walk more and more confident of not only who I am, but more equipped and with a greater passion in the purpose of what God has called me into. The Lord has truly taken me into an adventure of a lifetime.” – Hannah, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


David, MA in Applied Theology

MA

“The MA in Applied Theology has given me the chance to reflect theologically on the pastoral challenges which ministry involves. The taught modules gave me a great opportunity to mix with other students of all ages and from many different backgrounds and the input for these sessions was of the highest quality. The dissertation affords an opportunity to reflect in depth upon an issue of particular interest or concern. I can thoroughly recommend this course.” – David, MA in Applied Theology


Callum, BA in Applied Theology

BA

“I started my Foundation Year at Moorlands College with no academic skills; my main focus being to learn about God and the Bible. I have been equipped and supported to surpass my expectations academically and have grown more in my character than I ever thought possible.” – Callum, BA in Applied Theology


Joy, BA in Applied Theology

Joy G

“I really enjoy the applied aspect of Moorlands. We put our theology into practice every week through our placements in churches and Christians organisations, allowing us to grow individually and biblically. That’s what I love about Moorlands; the degree is so practical as well as being academic. We’ll leave Moorlands College being built up spiritually, and full of the skills that are needed in ministry.” — Joy, BA in Applied Theology


Joshua, MA in Applied Theology

Joshua

“My time studying the MA in Applied Theology at Moorlands College has certainly been a growing experience. I’ve made decisions in my life that have moved me forwards in my relationships with other people and with Jesus. I am constantly baffled by God’s ability to take care of the little things which then have a profound impact upon the gigantic things. The leadership stream of the MA took the few leadership skills I had and has helped me to develop an understanding of what leadership is, how it works and how to effectively apply it.” – Joshua, MA in Applied Theology


Amelia, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Amelia

“God has really shown me how important it is to do things in his strength and not my own… especially as deadlines approach! Studying at Moorlands’ Midlands Centre has allowed me to grow in my relationship with God, my practice as a youth worker, self-discipline and time management. Through my time at Moorlands, I have made lifelong friendships and I am being trained up positively for ministry and life after college.” – Amelia, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


Will, BA in Applied Theology

Will G

“My favourite thing about Moorlands College is the community. We’re a body of believers that are committed to encouraging Godly lifestyles and abiding in biblical principles. I’m so encouraged by the continual testimony of God’s grace to us, His people and His Church.” – Will, BA in Applied Theology


Shona, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work

Shona

“The best thing about Moorlands is definitely the community – as a student body and also with the lecturers. It’s so special to be in a place where we have lecturers who really invest in us academically, as well as having a heart for us to be the best men and women of God that we can possibly be.” – Shona, BA in Applied Theology with Youth and Community Work


Jonny, MA in Applied Theology

Jonny

“I am currently doing the MA in Applied Theology at Moorlands with a specialism of Christian Leadership. The course has helped me to explore different leadership models and practices as well as deepen my understanding of theology. As a result of studying at Moorlands, my relationship with God has strengthened greatly and I feel more equipped to tackle the tensions I face in Christian ministry. The lecturers and staff have always been extremely helpful, engaging and supportive and I have gained some phenomenal friends in the process.” – Jonny, MA in Applied Theology
