Nungalinya is the premier Combined Churches Training College for Indigenous Australians. The College is formally supported by the Anglican, Uniting and Catholic churches of the Northern Territory and is situated in Casuarina, a northern suburb of Darwin.
Since 1974, Nungalinya College has been equipping men and women for leadership roles in churches and communities. Our training programs explore the Christian faith contextually through courses in Foundation Studies, Bible Overview, Media, Music and Discipleship, Christian Ministry and Theology, and Bible Translation.
Each year, men and women from over 100 different communities across Australia come to study at Nungalinya College. Our students are from both remote and urban communities and their different cultural and language backgrounds are respected and included in campus life. Many students hold important positions of authority in their own communities. Nungalinya College respects these Elders and the traditional wisdom that they possess. We recognise that Elders are the appropriate leaders to pass on what they learn to their young people.
