Newlife College is a ministry of Newlife Uniting Church on the Gold Coast, providing theological education for those looking to study ministry and biblical theology – as a pathway to part time or full time ministry or for personal growth and development.
We provide a variety of study options and topics in undergraduate and postgraduate courses through our relationships with Adelaide College of Divinity and Uniting College for Leadership & Theology (a constituent member college of the Adelaide College of Divinity).
We hope you will be inspired to engage in a deeper knowledge and understanding of scripture, theology and ministry – expanding the way you connect with God and with others in your work, friendships and life.
Ps. Brenden Burgess
Principal – Newlife College

Hear from our students
Newlife College has challenged me to stretch in my faith and engage with God’s Word in a deeper way. I’ve had the opportunity to learn from and with some of the most fantastic people. My experience has gone far in equipping me for leadership and ministry in the contexts in which I serve.Ori
Newlife College puts first class teaching right on our front door! To have top quality lecturers, the Adelaide College of Divinity’s years of experience and the inspiring environment of the Gold Coast is an opportunity not to be missed! I have completed 4 of my 7 required subjects towards a Grad Dip of Ministry and am encouraged to continue well past the 7 subjects and onto Masters level! Thank you Newlife College!Marcelle
Working fulltime, I desired to study Theology part time to aid my personal development. I enrolled in an intensive class at Newlife College solely due to my interest in the subject matter. I was warmly welcomed and befriended by the currently enrolled students. The lecturers and administrative staff were extremely encouraging and supportive. As a consequence I have decided to continue studying for the Diploma of Ministry, with further advanced study a possibility. I have found a vibrant spiritual space at Newlife College to explore my gifts.Darryl
