Exploring Christology

An introductory online unit for anyone

who wants to know more

about the study of Christ.


Exploring Christology has been created around the Worship and Preaching Competencies for Biblical studies from the “Assembly Standards and Competencies for the Formation and Education for the Specified Ministry of Lay Preacher”. So, those training for the ministry of Lay Preaching, and those needing to undertake training for the Worship and Preaching Competencies for Pastors (as these are the same), can be assured they are receiving training to help them meet these competencies.


However, Exploring Christology was also written and developed to encourage faith and discipleship formation. So, it is also a great unit for:

  • Worship leaders
  • people undertaking a Period of Discernment
  • Lay Preachers looking for some continuing education
  • people who would like to explore Theology as a way of deepening their faith and relationship with God and
  • anyone just generally interested in knowing more about the study of Christ.


Exploring Christology covers:

  • Christological questions and historical development
  • The ministry and mission of Jesus
  • Images of the Christ
  • Christ and the church
  • Why did Jesus die?
  • The work of salvation and atonement
  • The resurrection and its meaning
  • Christology in context
  • Christ in the Uniting Church in Australia
  • Jesus Christ and Religious Pluralism


Exploring Christology can be accessed online through your Presbytery. If you are interested, please talk with your Presbytery education person.


Internet not great at home? The unit is also designed so that the base material can be downloaded and saved to your computer. Some Presbyteries are looking at developing or expanding learning hubs. So, you can learn together – and download your learning material to work on at home.
