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 plan regular events for vocational and discernment directors, so that you can meet and hear from the college’s leadership, visit with ordinands studying here, and experience aspects of student life at Trinity. For more information about these events, please email alison.branston@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk.

DDO Newsletter

Trinity emails a DDO Newsletter three times a year to help connect the dioceses with recent happenings and current information from Trinity.

If you would like to begin to receive this newsletter, or if you have any questions or feedback to share that could help us better serve you and the candidates you advise, please email alison.branston@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk or 0117 968 0205.
