Open days for Anglican ordinands

Share Icon

Anyone who is already in conversation with their Diocesan Director of Ordinands (DDO) about ordination in the Church of England is welcome to attend one of our Open Days. We invite you to discover what the Queen’s Foundation can offer, through its diverse life and its wide range of educational and formational programmes. Every Open Day will include the opportunity for a one-to-one meeting with a tutor to discuss your training needs, explore suitable pathways and give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Simply enquire through the form at the bottom of this page, and we'll get back to you.

If you are not yet in talks with your DDO, please consult the Church of England website for general information about ministry in the Church of England and the vocation process.

Upcoming Open Day dates

We warmly invite you to visit us and experience something of our community. Join us in chapel, eat with us and meet some of our staff and students. Use the form below to tell us when you would like to come.

Two ways to attend

  • As an enquirer, simply to find out more about what training at Queen's might look like for you; or,
  • As an applicant* if you are already fairly confident that Queen's could be the right place for you.

*If you are attending as an applicant, we will ask you to complete an application form giving details of potential ordination sponsorship category, length of training anticipated, whether full-time or part-time, and your educational background. This will help us talk to you in more detail at the Open Day about the programme we can offer you.

You are welcome to bring a friend, partner or your children along with you when you attend the Open day. They will be warmly welcomed and will have the opportunity to see how life at Queen’s might be for you and them, especially if they will be living here with you.
