DDO Newsletter, Spring 2018

Did you know Trinity students complete community placements in addition to their church placements?

Community placements help diversify our ordinands’ experiences of mission and ministry, while also helping them engage with people who are different from themselves, think theologically about mission in a ‘secular’ context, and think about what role the church might play in partnership with other organisations.

Coming up…

You may have heard that our principal Emma Ineson has been appointed as the next Bishop of Penrith. Emma will not leave Trinity until Easter 2019 and so will be in her current role as principal for most of the next academic year. The search for her successor is already underway, and we are working toward a seamless transition in the college’s leadership.
