Year-round contextual engagement
Your context church experience is important not just for the hands-on leadership training it gives you, but because it forms the context for your assessed learning.
In most cases, our part-time ordinands remain in their current church, and we will work with you to make sure that you have a supportive environment and good supervision from an experienced church leader.
You will meet regularly with both your supervising vicar and with a Trinity tutor to discuss your context experiences.
In addition the time spent in your context church, you will undertake a short-term church placement in a local church to help you gain ministry experiences in a different context. Read more about our partner churches.
We want you to have a holistic training experience, and so your practical experiences of ministry will inform your academic assignments for classes, and your placement church will be the environment in which you’ll have the opportunity to put into practice what you’re learning in the classroom.
