College of Preachers training
On this page you will find a list of the most commonly requested seminars that we offer. If you want to find out which seminars are currently available, where they are, and how to book for one or more of them, please go to our events diary.
We offer these seminars either as public events, open to preachers of all denominations; or as part of a training programme organised, for example, by an Anglican diocese for its curates, by a Roman Catholic diocese for its priests, by a Methodist district for its local preachers, or by a United Reformed Church region for its lay preachers.
Most of the seminars are run as one day events; but half days and weekend mini ‘preaching conferences’ are also possible.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of our arranging a seminar or a series of seminars for or with your organisation, in 2016 or early 2017, please contact the coordinator of our tutor team.
