 Church Partners

​T​he Faculty of Theology is an ecumenical faculty with students from a wide spectrum of denominations world-wide. We have four official church partners – the Dutch Reformed Church (DRC), the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (URCSA), the Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa (UPCSA) and the Anglican Church of Southern Africa (ACSA) – for whom we train ministers in terms of contracts and via ongoing negotiations about their needs.
