The Queen’s Foundation is one of England’s oldest theological colleges, preparing candidates for ordained ministry in the Church of England since the early part of the 19th Century. From 1970 Queen’s pioneered ecumenical training with the Methodist Church as a primary partner. Queen’s was also a pioneer of ecumenical part time training and of having a dedicated research centre.
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.
