Trinity College Theological School is committed to shaping men and women who wish to pursue ordination in the Anglican Church, develop skills for lay ministry, or explore Christian faith for personal or vocational enrichment and development.
Bishop James Moorhouse established the Theological School in 1877 to provide clergy with a large and liberal education by placing students in community with those studying in professional and other academic fields. Today that open and rigorous spirit still functions in a mostly non-resident community committed to ecumenical endeavor and Anglican comprehensiveness. Simply put, we strive to be the best theological College in Australia and one of the best Anglican Colleges in the world.
We encourage people in their vocation, whether lay or ordained, to participate in the Trinity College Theological School as a place of vibrant and quality theological and ministerial education, by offering world-class learning opportunities in partnership with the United Faculty of Theology and MCD University of Divinity.
We prepare students for the diversity of the emerging church, by the provision of high quality learning opportunities and models of church in contemporary society.
