Rev'd Richard Johnson —

REGIONAL & FLEXI-LEARN COURSES 2022: A reminder that the first course begins in early February and the Te Reo Māori course in early March. Make sure you register now if interested and contact Rev'd Richard Johnson for endorsement.

The courses for 2022 from St John’s Theological College have been released.

They are:

- New Testament

- Te Reo Māori

- Being Anglican

- Preaching

This is a summary of the content:

BST 511 BIBLE STORY: NEW TESTAMENT: This course is taught by Dr Tom Innes and gives insight into the culture and background that produced the New Testament writings. Online classes will run Tuesday nights, 7-9pm from 8th Feb to 24th May.

MMF 511: TE REO MĀORI: The course tutor will be St John’s’ new Tikanga Māori Dean, Te Hira Paenga. Classes will be online on Wednesdays 7-8.30pm from March 16th to mid-November. Learn correct pronunciation and basic grammar to be able to create some everyday sentences. Gain insight into the meanings of some key words that are so vital to understand things Māori.

From the end of May, FlexiLearn will offer The Journey Towards Being Anglican in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia, and in July, Preaching in our Time. More details later next year.

The details and enrolment form links are all on the St John’s College webpage: https://www.stjohnscollege.ac.nz/#/regional-programmes/

FlexiLearn courses enable people to study entirely from home (or even better, with friends or a small group in their area). The courses are free. To enrol, you will need the endorsement of Revd Richard Johnson, the St John’s College co-ordinator for the Diocese - a formality! Contact Richard on richardsueinvercargill@gmail.com for endorsement or for any more information.

Names of those who are taking up FlexiLearn programmes are shared with the Revd Dr Michael Godfrey, Diocesan Ministry Educator.
