DDO Information

St Mellitus College operates under the leadership of the Dean Andrew Emerton who holds responsibility for the College nationally, including ultimate oversight of all four of our regional teaching centres (London, Chelmsford, North West and South West).

He is supported by two Assistant Deans (Jane Williams and Lincoln Harvey), who also act as Centre Directors for the London teaching cohorts, and by the Directors of the other Centres Jill Duff (North West), Donna Lazenby (South West) and Rob Merchant (Chelmsford).

If you are a Diocesan Director of Ordinands, and would like to know more about St Mellitus College we would be delighted to welcome you to the College. Please do email Andrew Emerton or the relevant Centre Director if you would like to arrange a visit.
