The Queen’s Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education

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 pioneered ecumenical part-time training, and has a long-established 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 actively support Christians in deepening their spiritual life, and continuing growth in a faith that is generous, enquiring, deeply rooted and creative in thought and practice, trusting in God’s work in God’s world.
