Open Doors


The Centre for Applied Theology (CAT) is an organisation seeking to foster engagement with the Christian theological tradition by making learning opportunities available to people, regardless of denomination, prior educational background, or location. It does this especially by means of current technologies.

We offer a variety of programmes, courses, conversation series(es), individual lectures, and even video shorts, that we believe will be of some benefit to Christians seeking to engage with theological questions and build up their faith. This page is your portal to all that we currently offer, as well as an archive of things we have offered in the past.

Think of CAT as a department store, in which you can find any number of products to suit your needs, but all under one roof.
