USPG study courses: Exploring the bible with the world church
Our study courses explore different aspects of Christian life and mission from the perspective of the global church.
By offering insights into how our church partners are putting their faith into practice, we hope these courses will inspire you and your church to engage more deeply with local and global mission.

The Prophetic Voice of the Church
Today there are many prophetic voices throughout the world church: calling us to be like Jesus, who stood on the margins, comforting the oppressed and challenging the comfortable. This course explores this through the ministry of the church in India.
Further information and resources including videos to accompany each week of the study can be found here.
All Things Are Possible
Explore how Anglican Churches around the world are supporting global development.
We want to suggest that it is only in God that there is any real hope for lasting change.
Living an Authentic Life
Explore the meaning of discipleship, with reflections from the church in India, Malawi, Pakistan, South Africa and England.
We ask what it means to live an authentic life as a disciple of Christ – and suggest it involves being true to ourselves, to those we meet, and to God.
A Heart for Mission
For many Christians, mission is why the church is here; for others, the concept of ‘mission’ is tainted with ideas of colonialism or heavy-handed evangelism.
We take a fresh look at mission by focusing on the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission.
The Gospel in Action
This course looks at the meaning of the gospel from five different countries and five different perspectives.
With reflections from the church in Brazil, Ghana, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Zambia, we look at how the gospel can inspire us to live differently and challenge injustice.
Migration and Movement
We look at the complex issues of economic migration, refugees, human trafficking, and the displacement of communities due to climate change.
We do not claim to have the answers, but hope this course will inspire us to engage more deeply with the issues.
