Service in a world of difference

We recognise that Christian ministers today lead and serve diverse congregations. At Queen’s, God can develop and form you for life and service.

We learn together.

We come to Queen’s as individuals, shaped by our God and pasts. At Queen’s we learn together, exposed to God and the diversity of the people God calls.

Exploration & development

We offer an opportunity for you to realise and develop your own beliefs. One of the largest theological libraries in the region, it is invaluable to our students.

Committed to excellence

We’re committed to honouring, celebrating and respecting the different traditions of our sponsoring churches. We nurture habits of gracious acceptance.

All the diversity of the church

You’ll be surprised by the backgrounds of the people God places in learning beside you. You’ll be challenged by the diverse perspectives presented.

The Queen's Foundations main building

Welcome to The Queen’s Foundation, for Ecumenical Theological Education

Queen’s is dedicated to excellence in theological education and personal formation by:

  • Nurturing and equipping Christians in their discipleship;
  • Preparing people for mission and ministry in lay and ordained roles;
  • Resourcing research that serves the mission of God in the world.

We celebrate unity in diversity, in a community that is international, multi-cultural, and ecumenical. We aim to enable Christians to deepen their spiritual life, to grow in a faith that is generous, enquiring, deeply rooted and creative in thought and practice, and to be passionate for God’s work in God’s world.  So whatever your reason for embarking on theological study, wherever God is calling you to, you’ll find Queen’s a hospitable but challenging place. We’ll help you grow through a journey of exploration and development, as your beliefs are tested and strengthened, and as God grows and forms you for your future service. Read more about the Foundation.
