Job vacancies


We are seeking to appoint a new principal following the departure of Rev Dr Emma Ineson to become the Bishop of Penrith in the Diocese of Carlisle in spring 2019. We are hoping that the new principal will join us by then so as to enable a seamless transition for the college.

Trinity is a lively worshipping and learning community with a vision to ‘live like the Kingdom is near’ and a mission to shape ‘leaders of Christ-like character in community for a missional church’. We have an excellent faculty and staff, over 100 ordinands, 60 other undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, and 40 research students. The college is embarking on exciting developments to create more accessible modes of training for dispersed students and to renew on-site accommodation and facilities for residential students. This is a great opportunity for someone with a passion for theological
education and ministerial formation and a heart for community to help shape a generation of new church leaders.


Closing date for applications: 31 August 2018.
