|Beyond the Institute|
There are many opportunities for engaging in learning in programs and seminars offered by other bodies, with which the St James’ Institute has friendly arrangements. On this page you can find a list of forthcoming activities conducted by other bodies. We also list a number of other institutions and organisations, with a link to their websites, where you can find more information.
Eremos Institute is an ecumenical association with its roots in Christianity, offering a forum and support for individuals and communities to explore, express and deepen their spirituality within an Australian context. EREMOS magazine is published quarterly with articles on a wide range of topics, artwork, poetry, reflections, book reviews and notices of events and conferences. We also have a book discussion group scheme (over 40 studies available for hire by groups or individuals). We welcome people of all beliefs - what we share in common is the desire to continually deepen our connection with God, the world and one another.
Trinity College Theological School, Melbourne, was founded in 1877 by Bishop James Moorhouse to train a ‘learned and dedicated clergy’. This founding vision has been the core of the School’s contribution to the Church, although its focus has now broadened to shaping the ministry of all God’s people, women and men, lay and ordained in the fullness of Anglican tradition. The School represents a catholic breadth in theology, worship and spirituality, and seeks to embody the Anglican way in a critical, reflective and articulate style, in dialogue with the contemporary world.

education for ministry
EfM is for you if you are looking for an extensive educational program which seeks to link the content of the Christian tradition with your own life experience. It is a four year program, but it is not necessary to commit to anything more than the first year. The topic for the first year is The Hebrew Scriptures (the Old Testament). The topics of the other years are Christian Testament (the New Testament), Christian Passages (Church History) and Theological Choices (Contemporary Theology). For each session there will be Readings. The handbook of readings is provided at the beginning of the program and is included in the registration fee.
Thousands of people in Anglican parishes throughout Australia have undertaken this program for the last 30 years. It is extremely well received by those who have participated in it, but it does require a high level of commitment. The program is open to everyone and no formal qualifications are needed.
