At Stirling we believe that the preparation of God’s people for service, leadership, ministry and mission is absolutely crucial. We are convinced that something life-giving and hope-filled happens when behaviour, belonging and belief converge.
Stirling Theological College was established in 1907 as the college of the National Conference of Churches of Christ in Australia.
Our mission is ‘Forming God’s people for leadership, mission and ministry’. Our approach to ministry, theology and faith is both evangelical and ecumenical with a passion to receive and share the good news of God. We enjoy a diversity of students from a wide variety of backgrounds and Christian traditions who all enrich the life of our community. We are situated in Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs between the M3 and M1 making it an easy drive from just about anywhere in Melbourne. With loads of easy parking and a bus stop at the front, our well-equipped campus is spacious with lush gardens and views to the Dandenong mountains.
