Perth Theological Hall (PTH) has embarked upon an ecumenical venture this year with a joint ministerial formation program with Wollaston Anglican College.
Dr Alex Jensen of PTH said, “We hope that the two traditions will enrich each other and that the larger student cohort will benefit from greater possibilities for interaction. It also makes sense to combine the limited resources of the two churches with the whole being greater than the parts.”
In the first semester, Anglican and Uniting students will explore the role of the minister as educator. Already the Uniting Church candidates enjoyed teaching sessions with Dave Male on 6 February.
The program was designed by both faculties drawing on the expertise and resources of both churches. The joint program will be reviewed at the end of the semester with extensive feedback sought from all involved.
