Centre for Catholic Formation – Archdiocese of Southwark

CCRS Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies

The Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) offers an introduction to the central teaching and beliefs of the Catholic tradition. The modules are taught through lectures and group discussions in a friendly environment. The CCRS is managed and awarded by the Board of Religious Studies on behalf of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales; it is open to anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.

We offer a two-year course on Saturdays from 10.30am to 4pm at the CCF in Tooting Bec and at The Angelus Centre in Erith, Kent; and an intensive one year course at the CCF in Tooting Bec on Tuesdays from 9am to 6pm.

For the two year course an assignment tutorial will be offered at the CCF after each module.
Each module of the one year course will be preceeded by a 2 hour preparation task, being part of the required module time. The course can either be taken for credit with assignments or as audit only with no assignments.
