Your time at Moore College will give you lifelong memories of good times and build relationships with partners in ministry.
Life At Moore
Jesus Christ is the universal Lord and only Saviour whose glory and mission lies at the heart of all we do.
Our faculty is made up of men and women who are outstanding gospel-centred scholars and mission-minded pastors, who love to serve our students.
We believe that being shaped by God’s word in character, knowledge and skills happens best in a community of faithful fellow-learners.
Engagement with God's word
Engagement with God's word
God gathers and builds his people through his word; hence serious study of the Bible in the original languages is the core of our curriculum.
The various components of the curriculum serve the purpose of knowing God better and equipping students to make him known to others.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is for the world and we seek to strengthen this vision and prepare men and women to cross streets, oceans and cultures to share the good news.
We want our graduates to know the truth, care effectively for people and help them grow to maturity in Christ.
Moore College is located just 2 km from the CBD, adjacent to Sydney University and within the vibrant café culture of Newtown.
Amongst Moore’s wonderful resources is the largest and most comprehensive theological library in the southern hemisphere.
Moore College graduates serve in churches, schools, universities, chaplaincies and theological colleges, across Australia and throughout the world.
Community allows students to be given strong support academically, socially and spiritually.
Growing in the knowledge of God is more than simply learning and knowing ‘stuff’. It is about being shaped and transformed, growing in Christ-likeness, in fellowship with others. We are committed to fostering loving personal relationships, developed through regular meeting centred on prayer and hearing God’s word, as the proper context for learning about God and his purposes.
God has been changing lives and equipping his servants at Moore College since 1856.See Some Of Their Stories
Each year, Moore College sends teams of students and faculty out from college to partner with churches in Sydney, Australia and overseas to run missions that proclaim Jesus.
Please pray for the students, faculty, chaplains and local churches as they prepare for missions. Each year the churches we partner with change, keep up to date with who we are partnering with now.
Women at Moore
Almost half of those studying at Moore are women, who enjoy a wonderful community life.
Single women students reside at Carillon House on the Newtown campus and all women have the same full range of subject choice as men. In addition, there is a special stream in our Advanced Diploma of Bible, Mission and Ministry devoted to the particular issues surrounding women’s ministry. Women students attend chapel three times a week (as do the men) and one of those is a dedicated women’s chapel. Women students are also members of a chaplaincy group (led by a member of the faculty and a woman co-chaplain) and each year go on mission. Special events for women students are held from time to time.
Many women are part of our community as wives of students. Moorewomen, which organises, amongst other things, a weekly fellowship meeting with a wide range of speakers and a network of weekly Bible study groups, is designed especially for them (though open to all women at College) and provides further opportunity to be knit into the College community and to grow in Christ by learning and serving alongside other women. We are concerned to provide a spiritually rich and rewarding time for all in our community, without burdening those who might already have a heavy load of commitments inside and outside of College.
