Open days for Anglican ordinands

Share Icon

For general information about ministry in the Church of England and the vocation process please consult the Church of England website.

Anyone who is already in conversation with their Diocesan Director of Ordinands (DDO) about ordination in the Church of England is welcome at one of our Anglican 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 programme options for training.

If these dates are impossible for you, please contact our Anglican admissions team. Individual visits are usually possible, though you won't get the same 'feel' for the life of the college.

Two ways to attend

  • You can attend an Open Day (whether online or on-site) as an enquirer, simply to find out more about what training at Queen's might look like for you; or,
  • if you are already fairly confident that Queen's could be the right place for you, you can attend an Open Day as an applicant.

If you attend 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.
