The Centre’s Aim

The Centre for Ministry Studies at Aberdeen University (CMS) endeavours to be a centre of excellence that seeks to facilitate world class education and training for people involved in Christian ministry at home and internationally. Through developing and nurturing creative and innovative working relationships between the academy and the church, the Centre strives to produce scholarly work and practical training initiatives designed to enable people to think and to practice well.
'What the Centre provides is an answer to prayer for me and I want to spread the news about it wherever I can.' Rev Jim Pirie
