Ordination Training 2018

Thank you for your interest in ordination training here at St John’s. We are pausing our recruitment of ordinands this academic year while we work closely with regional and national partners to develop new programmes for ordination training. In the meantime we are continuing to recruit and enrol students for our children and youth ministry, contextual ministry, independent study and distance learning programmes and welcome enquiries and applications for those.

Please keep checking our website for updates on our plans for ordination training for 2018 onwards.

We will be praying for you as you continue your journey in faith.

For more than 150 years, St John’s, Nottingham has trained leaders for God’s mission.  We’re proud of the thousands of Christians who have gone from here to serve God in every corner of Britain, and of the world.  The world is changing fast, and we have to change too, to find new ways to train new leaders for the church of the future.

The church needs a radically re-shaped ministry for the future.  We need missional leaders—ordained and lay—with a deep understanding of faith grounded in practice: faith lived out in a challenging and changing culture. We need evangelists, youth ministers and children’s work specialists. We need risk-takers and ground-breakers. We need people who might never have thought of themselves as missional leaders, but are prepared to answer the call of God.

St John’s offers high-quality flexible training for the whole people of God.
