Fifty Years of Trinity

This year of 2022 marks a significant milestone for our community as we celebrate fifty years of Trinity. We want to take the time to celebrate by bringing the community together both past and present.

 

When looking at our records (that only go back so far), Andrew Lucas, our Executive Director, estimates that Trinity has taught and sent on approximately 1400+ ordinands over this period, of whom we are immensely proud.  

The future holds many great opportunities. In particular, we are looking forward to continuing the consultation for the site development project which looks to build new on-site accommodation for single ordinands while making the best use of the assets we already have. 

It is exciting to think about the impact those 1400 ordinands have had on the world but even more exciting to think of the impact that our current students and those we’ve not even met yet will have too. 

We would like to thank you for joining us on the journey so far and we’d love to invite you to continue to support us in our plans for the future.  

 

Join us for a celebration.

UPDATE – WE HAVE HAD TO CHANGE THE PROGRAMME SEE DETAILS BELOW

To mark this important time we are planning to have a celebration later this year on the 11th June. 

We thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to invite the entire alumni and extended community back to Stoke Bishop to meet old friends in your year group, meet current tutors and faculty and to learn about how the college has grown and changed over the years.

So, spread the word; invite your prayer group, study buddies and connect companions.

We really are looking forward to welcoming you back.

We'd love to hear from you - Tell your story!

To encourage our community, we’re really keen to hear stories from alumni about how their time at Trinity prepared them for what they went on to do. Whether it’s stories to inspire our current ordinands, give updates on projects or simply to glorify God’s work, please get in touch. 

There are two ways to get involved.

  1. Record a short 3-minute video – Grab your phone or get some help and ask someone to film you telling the story. Send it over to us and we will look to include it at the celebration.
  2. Write up a summary – With all that experience under your belts of writing sermons, we’re sure you’ll be able to write up your story and send it over and email it to us.

Please send your stories, whether they are video links, photos, documents or emails to our Communications & Publicirt officer: mark.robinson@trinitycollegebristol.ac.uk

*Please also be mindful of any safeguarding or privacy issues with your story. Make sure, that if you mention people by name, that they would be happy to be included in it.
