Bishop’s Commission for Mission (BCM)
Programme Streams Available Autumn 2017
Are you a lay person? Would you like some input for your existing ministry, or for a developing vocational path? More interested in learning from passionate practitioners and others in ministry than in getting a formal qualification? Want help to see you ministry through a missional lens? Then Bishop’s Commission for Mission could be for you.
BCM is a lay training programme focused on enabling church members to live missionally in every part of their lives, equipping them to live out their vocation to the full. Through participating in the programme we believe God will shape you for your place in his mission.
To qualify for the training programme you will need to be recommended by your incumbent and PCC, who will usually pay your training costs. Once you have successfully completed the programme, you will be commissioned by the Bishop of Winchester for your role.
To find out in more detail what participating this programme might involve, please visit the BCM page on the Diocesan website , or contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org 01962-710973 07884-268968.

Sarum College in March
Theology and Film
Course Dates: Mon 5 March, 2:00 pm to Thu 8 March, 2:00 pm
This module explores the growing field of theology and film.
Students will become conversant in the language and history of cinema, noting specifically the unique ways in which film uses technology, editing, framing, and sound to convey meaning. After a brief introduction to film studies, students will then explore the historical relationship between theology and film, with specific reference to the reception (ranging from prohibition to utilisation) of film by the Christian Churches.
We will spend time looking at and studying selected films (The Railway Man, The Tango Lesson and Chinatown), allowing students to develop the critical skills helpful for film interpretation and explore possible theological approaches to film criticism.
Students will investigate the claims that contemporary film provides an alternative site or location for religion in the context of modern consumer societies.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
