Introduction

T

he opening of the Moore College Learning and Teaching Centre in February 2017 gave the College a wonderful opportunity to connect its past, present and future through the naming of new rooms and in some cases the renaming of existing rooms. Moore College has a wonderful heritage stretching back to its establishment on 1Â March 1856, with an Acting Principal and just three students, and even further back to the vision of Thomas Moore, its first benefactor, whose will came into effect upon his death in 1840. This booklet has been prepared to enable students, faculty and staff of the College to see what has been done and rejoice in the inheritance into which they have entered as present members of the College. We hope it will also be helpful in locating where particular rooms are on the campus. As you read through this booklet and catch a glimpse of what God has done here over the past 160 years, we trust that you will pause to thank him for all he has provided and to ask for his blessing on the College in the years ahead.

The Learning and Teaching Centre The Learning and Teaching Centre was opened on 11 February 2017 by the Governor of NSW. It is by far the biggest building development the College has undertaken in its history and represents a quantum leap forward in our facilities. The building was designed to serve the task of training men and women to be faithful and effective ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is meant to facilitate community life, encourage community learning, and excite people about the possibilities of working together for the advancement of Christ’s kingdom. All who planned this building have earnestly prayed that every feature of it would serve that end and so bring great benefit to the churches in Sydney, across Australia, and around the world. This Learning and Teaching Centre is made up of one level below ground and six levels on and above ground (amounting to almost 8,000 square metres). It houses the Donald Robinson Library, the largest single theological library in the Southern Hemisphere and one which holds some of the earliest books brought to the colony, the Port Jackson Lending Library. It also has a wonderful archives and rare books section, including books published in the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In addition it houses tutorial rooms, an assembly hall big enough to bring the entire undergraduate student body together with some room to grow, and purpose-built research and study spaces for students.
