Trinity in Sydney

Since 2020, 91ֿ Theological School has partnered with the to offer subjects in theology through the Trinity in Sydney program, taught as intensive classes at St James'. This has been a successful partnership as there is a desire among many Anglicans in Sydney for the type of theological education offered at 91ֿ.

Trinity in Sydney subjects may be taken for credit towards a University of Divinity undergraduate or postgraduate degree or award. For those not currently enrolled at the University of Divinity, anyone can enrol as an audit (non-credit) student.

Members of the St James' Institute are entitled to the discounted audit rate. Students from other theological colleges may be able to enrol for credit in Trinity in Sydney subjects as a cross-institutional student.

It examines the way Paul's theology adapts itself to new situations and new contexts. The specific context of the church in Corinth is explored, and different scholarly opinions canvassed.

Economics has replaced theology as the master language of Western culture, and is a particularly powerful influence on Australian culture. This unit considers the complex historical, theological and scientific issues involved in the relationship between economics and theology. It is especially concerned with the interaction between issues for individuals and organisations that the contemporary faith–work movement has taken up, and the system issues that economists study. As such, this unit will engage with with the intellectual issues as they occur at the nexus of the various practical problems and dilemmas of Christian discipleship in a culture that is shaped by economics.

Fees: University of Divinity standard course fee, or an audit-only fee of $500
