Learning Adult Learning About Adult Learning Adult Learning continues at the Cathedral! While we cannot meet in person to enjoy learning, discussion and fellowship, we're continuing to offer a programme of events online. Take a look at our talks, courses and discussion group pages to see what's coming up.

To find out more about how to use Zoom, or how our online/hybrid events work, please take a look at our Learning Online page. The Cathedral’s rich heritage of learning inspires the work which goes on here today. We are one of only a few cathedrals in the country which offer a full programme of adult learning events designed to explore faith, history and culture from many angles. Each term we produce a programme packed full of talks, workshops and study days which cover all sorts of topics, such as: theology, spirituality and biblical studies politics and history languages art and literature film and music We also offer a series of courses within our Certificate in Theology for those wishing to explore Christianity. You are welcome to join as a student and work towards the full Certificate by submitting essays, or just to attend the classes and enjoy learning from some exceptional and experienced tutors. Our Adult Learning programme also offers opportunities to learn and practice ancient languages. We’re pleased to be able to offer courses and discussion groups for Latin, New Testament Greek, Hebrew and Old English. We also run summer schools for those wanting something unusual to do over the summer (re-starting summer 2022)! All of our work is supported by the library and archives. I have enjoyed a variety of stimulating, enjoyable experiences - from discussing books to taking courses, and from participating in music events to learning about an array of subjects presented by well-educated, engaging speakers Bursary Scheme and Training Grants We do not wish anyone to be deterred from attending for financial reasons. For more information about our Bursary Scheme, or for how to claim from your Diocesan Training Grant if you are clergy or a Reader, please email us. Local partners We are fortunate that the local area is steeped in Learning, and are pleased to be able to work in partnership with a few local groups, such as the Friends of St Albans Cathedral and St Albans Architectural and Archaeological Society, who also run a programme of events.
