Exploring Black History and Black Theology

Black history on and off campus October was Black History Month; something we were keen for everyone at Trinity to engage with. Students and faculty took the opportunity to share reading and resources around Black history, racism and the Church, to reflect on their experiences, and take part in a number of events. Students arranged […]

MA course now available to dispersed learners

In recent years, the college has developed and grown a new cohort of context-based ordinands, whom we call ‘dispersed learners’. We are delighted that dispersed learners can now join our Master of Arts in Theology, Ministry and Mission programme.

Women in the New Testament Course.

As a college, we fully support the ordination of women and are especially proud of those who attended and are attending this institution as part of their own journeys as well as those who are currently discerning their calling.

What does it mean to be the people of Jesus in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic? A timely message from Tutor in Pastoral and Ministerial Studies Revd Dr Helen Collins, shared in our virtual chapel this morning.  Three weeks ago, I began to think about what passage to choose for what would have been an […]

Poverty in the Early Church and Today

Trinity Tutor in New Testament Prof Steve Walton and Tearfund’s Hannah Swithinbank have co-edited an innovative book of essays that brings the expertise of those working to alleviate poverty together with the expertise of biblical scholars. This allows for a unique conversation about how Christians might think and act about poverty today. Q. Can you […]

The pain and gain of learning Greek

One of the things I was most looking forward to as I approached the beginning of my studies at Trinity was learning Greek. For years I had heard sermons where the preacher had pronounced ‘In the Greek it says…’ and proceeded to unfold seemingly profound mysteries through knowledge of this ancient language. Being the investigative […]

Students could choose from among eight options for the day, led by a mix of faculty and students. Options included a Franciscan walk through Leigh Woods with Revd Dr Howard Worsley, a cycling pilgrimage with Bristol Baptist College […]
