The Search for Happiness

A God Who Speaks?

The Bible

The Power of Prayer

Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies

The CCRS is a national qualification in Catholic Theology that is aimed at deepening knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith and how it can be lived out. You do not need any previous qualifications in theology to study. There are 6 core modules and 2 specialist modules (of your choice); study the Bible, the Church, Jesus Christ, the Sacraments and more. We offer it here in the Diocese of Nottingham in a flexible study plan:

Catechist Course

It has been a number of years since we have been able to offer a Catechist Training Course. We are resting the Bishop's Certificate in Catechesis and offering three NEW short courses - from first steps into catechises to taking your parish to the next level. Each course will take place in a different location in the diocese so we can reach as many people as possible but you will also be able to join online so geography is no longer a barrier!
