Here at Mary Andrews College, we equip women to serve Christ throughout a whole lifetime.
Mary Andrews College is a theological college that equips women to serve Christ faithfully. Our primary focus is on growing our students’ knowledge and understanding of the Bible and combining that with the development of practical ministry skills. We are dedicated to growing our students in spiritual formation and discipleship in order to equip them for ministry in the church, the community, and the world. Our particular areas of specialisation – pastoral care, mental health, and disability – are what make MAC unique amongst theological institutions in Australia.
Our courses offer many different pathways for students at certificate, diploma and now, at graduate certificate level. The women who study at MAC range in ages from 19 to 80, with some women who have multiple degrees in different fields, to those who did not finish high school. But as women who all wish to become more Christlike and to serve His church and His people, they come to MAC in order to study and grow together in community.
Some women come to MAC in order to be trained for roles such as pastoral carers or community chaplains. Many others come to study at MAC to be better equipped to do the ministry roles they are already involved in, whether that’s running Bible study groups, teaching SRE, or serving on the pastoral care team of their local church. But whatever their final destination, MAC is a community of like-minded women who understand the challenges of juggling study with family, ministry and other responsibilities. At MAC, we try and make study as flexible as possible for our students. This means many of our students study as little as one subject per semester. But despite the part-time nature of our students, we work at developing and fostering a sense of community and connection for all our students.
