Shape of the week

Sunday: Students and their families worship at their local context church, where they are engaged in their church placement experience.

Monday: A study day, usually free from formal college commitments so that students can have the time to read, write, and reflect on what they’re learning.

Tuesday/Thursday: Weekday mornings we meet for Morning Prayer in the chapel. Our main lecture days are Tuesdays, with additional classes on Thursdays and Fridays, depending on the student’s study programme and particular module choices. Our School of Leadership meets on Thursday afternoons, as do the postgraduate research seminars.

Wednesday: Safeguarded for personal spiritual development, with set time for quiet, small group worship and support through Tutor Groups, as well as personal contemplation and prayer.

Friday: The day includes Communion together in the morning, before our ordinands meet in groups to discuss Anglican Story, Ethos and Practice. Independent students are invited to participate in a tutor-led independent reading group.
