Virtual Open Day

This spring and summer, as we wait to host you in person, we’ve tried to put together the kinds of talks and interactions you would have had if you’d come here for an in-person visit or an Open Day.

It is not the same as meeting you (and your family) face to face, or you experiencing a taste of our community here in Bristol, but we’ve done the best we can to create resources to help you learn more about us as you consider which college might best fit you as you pursue ordination training or theological education.

  2. Watch a video about studying within our residential/’gathered’ Bristol community (1:56 minutes) >
  3. Watch a video about studying through our non-residential/’dispersed learning’ programme (2:30 minutes) >
