School of Leadership

In September 2015, Trinity College unveiled a new School of Leadership, run in partnership with CPAS, an Anglican evangelical mission agency.

The programme takes Trinity College students through topics in four areas:

  • leading yourself
  • leading others
  • leading change
  • leading mission

The primary teachers for the programme are Rev James Lawrence, who is Leadership Principal at CPAS, and Rev Ian Parkinson, who is Leadership Specialist in Theological Education at CPAS.

What students are saying…

‘This has been a real lifeline of practical wisdom in leading well. It is down-to-earth but still theological in its approach to ministry. It is an amazing part of the Trinity programme and one of the most valuable aspects of practical training for ordination in the church. Without it I believe we would be less well equipped to face the challenges of full-time ministry.’  – ordinand Trev Meardon

‘I feel passionate about being trained not just to “maintain” or “help keep afloat” the Anglican Church, but to be a dynamic leader who senses where God is leading. I want to have the courage to lead a church forward, exploring new ways of being (and doing) church, and learning together in authentic communities of faith. The School of Leadership is designed to help address this need.’  – ordinand Jo Purle
