The Westfield House Certificate: Distance and Blended Learning

In development for the beginning of the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Westfield House Certificate in Lutheran Ministry is designed for Lutheran ministerial and diaconal candidates, church workers and laity throughout the United Kingdom, and assists in the training of students in partner churches and seminaries world-wide. The goal of the curriculum is to provide a grounding in confessional Lutheran theology as well as practical preparation for service in the Lutheran church.

Our new distance and blended learning mode of delivery, which will launch in the 2020 academic year, will provide an opportunity for students to study at a distance, with short residential components taught in Cambridge. The Certificate is designed so that students may complete the entire course in an academic year. However, it is also sufficiently modularised so that it could be spread over the course of several years to meet the particular needs of part-time students. Individual modules are also open to interested students who may not necessarily wish to complete the entire Certificate.
