We offer an informal program of guided reading for theology graduates, clergy on sabbatical or church workers in full-time ministry. It is a personalised program suitable for those wishing to take time out from ministry.

- two consultations with a faculty member.
- auditing selected lectures.
- a welcome invitation at Chapel.
- full access to the Library (borrowing rights are optional and subject to the current fee).
- meals may be taken in the dining room with faculty and students at the current student rate.
