Anglican ordination candidates
Bishopdale Theological College is open to students from all denominations and backgrounds. It has, however, a specific vision within its overall purpose to provide a place of theological learning and ministry formation for those considering a call to ordained ministry within the Anglican Church.
If you hope to apply for Anglican ordination, you are strongly encouraged to complete a full Bachelors degree.
Students already accepted for ordination training by their Anglican Bishop will be assisted to comply with the requirements laid down by the accepting Bishop.
College staff will liaise with each Bishop to ascertain these requirements and will make regular reports to that Bishop.
Please note that acceptance for a programme of study or at the College does not imply acceptance for ordination.
Ordination students from other denominations
Bishopdale Theological College welcomes you and will seek to assist you in fulfilling the requirements for training and learning as prescribed by your denomination. As with all students, you will be helped to achieve your goal to gain a theological education and equip yourself to serve God’s people.
