SWYM ~ Children, Families and Communities pathway (within the Moorlands BA (Hons) Applied Theology)

This pathway explores the interaction between ethical, sociological and psychological theories and theological perspectives in relation to working with children, families and local communities.
Drawing on Biblical perspectives, the course critically examines intergenerational ministry, how families relate, parenting, issues around divorce, and just about everything to do with working alongside families in the context of their community. The course will also encourage you to understand your God-given gifts and abilities in this field, and equip you for ministry.
