Learn in community

Full-time independent students have the option to be connected with:

  • Tutor Groups (smaller groups of students who meet weekly with a designated Trinity tutor for worship and prayer, theological reflection, encouragement, and who serve the wider community together in practical ways)
  • The gathered community’s practices of spiritual disciplines and spiritual retreats
  • Church placement experiences
  • Everything else our Bristol community offers!

An independent student is selected each year to participate in our Student Exec, and Trinity Tutor in New Testament Dr Jamie Davies serves as Tutor for Independent Students. Both the exec rep and tutor act as liaisons to represent our independent students in the college leadership, and are available to hear any concerns, questions, or ideas.

As I’ve watched the world shift under all our feet, it helps me to remember that. In Joshua 4, […]
