Centre for Formation in Ministry

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.

Cost and Pathway Information

Information on the different pathways for ordination training, together with the costs payable by Dioceses and sponsoring denominations, is available by clicking here. We also offer a specialist pathway in rural ministry.

For those considering our courses as private students, please contact us to talk about options and costs.

Come and Meet Us

Prospective students may attend the Saturday morning of one of our residential weekends for a flavour of what Sarum College has to offer. There is an informal interview/conversation with an academic member staff, opportunity to sit in on a teaching session and to meet current students over lunch.

To attend or to visit at a mutually convenient time during the week, please email Annette Young (ayoung@dev.sarum.ac.uk) and she will arrange the details with you.
