We are delighted to announce the appointment of Revd. Helen Johnson as Vice Principal for Formation, starting on 1st April 2023. Helen has been Pastoral and Formation Tutor at Trinity for more than two years and more recently has been Acting Director of Formation. She will continue to teach on a number of different academic pathways, with students across all modes of training including part-time, dispersed, and gathered learners. ⁠

“I’m so excited to be taking on this role at this time in the life of Trinity and its community,” says Helen, “with a focus on ministerial formation, and all the joys and challenges this can so often bring to our student body. The pastoral and formational aspects of the role provide a backdrop for engagement with students in so many different ways, including working with local churches, and those further afield, to enable student placements in a variety of settings. ⁠

“Trinity has been a place of great joy and welcome to me, thanks to the great sense of community across staff, student, and faculty teams alike. I hope that I might share that same welcome and joy with those who are yet to join us.”⁠
