Centre for Formation in Ministry

Sarum trains people for Christian ministry in a world undergoing rapid and profound changes.

Fully engaged in contemporary culture, the community is outward-looking, creative, flexible, caring, imaginative and diverse.

Our community life is centred around worship and rooted deeply in scripture.

Our responsive training is adventurous and Spirit-led, nourishing the whole human being by:

  • educating confident, constructive people who are able to think about faith, the Bible, the church and mission, both in theory and in practice;
  • training for informed reflective ministry, marked by wisdom, commitment and a capacity for collaboration;
  • forming ministers who participate responsibly in the mission of God by integrating their learning within the particularities and complexities of local communities, as well as the wider church and world.

Our work divides into three areas. Please click below to find out more:
