Ministry Training

Our vision is to provide high-quality flexible training for ministry (ordained or lay) that suits your lifestyle. Training that excites and inspires, that challenges and encourages growth.

Our blended learning uses online modules, residential weekends, smaller groups and your home context to create an integrated approach to your training, so you become effective in mission, ministry and leadership for the church today and in the future.

Residential weekends take place in the inspiring surroundings of Salisbury’s Cathedral Close in a place linked with theological learning over many centuries. Prior to the merger with Sarum College in February 2015, these courses were delivered through the Southern Education Training and Education Scheme (STETS).
