Flexible training options
Did you know that we are the only theological college to offer our students every mode of training?
Trinity students can now choose from three pathways to ordination: full-time residential training, full-time context-based training, and part-time training.
Our residential students live in the Bristol neighbourhoods surrounding Trinity, where they are assigned, alongside the other members of their Tutor Group, to a local church in which to gain reflective practical experience and mentoring.
Our non-residential students, who have chosen to continue in their current church or ministry context, will continue to minister and be mentored there, while attending one-day-a-week classes and special weekend or summer modules at Trinity.
We work to fit our students’ training to their unique situations. We are committed to coming alongside each one to understand their needs and particular calling, to help prepare them to serve God faithfully and to live the values of Christ’s coming kingdom.
To talk further about your options, call or email our admissions team: email@example.com or 0117 968 0254.
