Associates Program

Welcome to the SMBC Associates Program especially for the over 50s (semi-retired or retired).

This special Wednesday morning program is for people over 50 who may have more time on their hands and who want to dig deeper biblically without the pressure of exams or assignments. You can come to one, a few, or ideally come to all 12! Each semester  a different unit of study will be covered.

The 2019 program commences on Wednesday 6 February 2019 with Dr Peter Lau, (SMBC graduate and visiting Old Testament lecturer). Peter will be taking us on a journey through the books of Ruth (six weeks) and Esther (six weeks).
