Staff, Student and Alumni Profiles

Students at Trinity join a diverse and welcoming community of people from many backgrounds and with varied experiences of church and faith.

Trinity's students and alumni have gone on to make significant contributions to the wider church. This includes undertaking parish ministry (both lay and ordained), leading church agencies, being appointed as lecturers in theological colleges or as archdeacons or deans, and being elected as bishops, archbishops and primates of the Anglican Church of Australia.

Our students are taught by renowned leaders in theology, who have undertaken many interesting roles throughout their careers.
