Information for vocational and discernment directors

If you work in a Church of England diocese to help guide those considering ordination, we want to supply you with helpful information about what we offer.

We usually hold two DDO Days, one in the Autumn term and another in the Spring. Last year we had a successful online DDO Day, and if we need to revert back to more remote events, we are able to facilitate that with ease.

For more information about these events, please email admissions@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk.

DDO Day: 1st Dec 2021

DDO days are a great opportunity to meet some of our new Faculty, hear the latest news about Trinity College and learn what we can offer your future ordinands whilst taking the opportunity to meet with current ordinands and their tutors.
