About the Diocesan Certificate of Biblical Studies (DCBS)

The Biblical Studies Programme enables participants to systematically study, book by book, all 66 books of the Bible.

  • Instruction is aimed at bringing Bible literacy to the participants, to help them know the contents of the Bible and to apply God’s Word to life.
  • Each module comprises an average of nine lectures / tutorials, conducted on Thursday evenings, 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm.
  • Two modules are conducted concurrently in a term: one each from the Old and New Testaments. You may only sign up for one module each term.
  • You can join the programme at any time.
  • Participants may choose their modules in any order. We recommend that all first-time participants also attend Module 1 (A and B) when it is offered at the start of each year, to receive a background overview of the Bible.
