“As we seek to train men and women for ministry and mission in a rapidly changing context, St Mellitus College offers the Chelmsford Diocese a flexible and inclusive approach for theological and ministerial education and formation. It is very exciting to be part of this pioneering initiative.”
The Bishop of London (1995 – 2017)
“At a time when fragmentation and partisanship can appear to threaten the credibility and effectiveness of our ministry, St Mellitus represents a bold step of faith and trust. We believe that as we pursue the harder path of unity in diversity, the College will prove to be an instrument of the Spirit in equipping the whole people of God to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Bishop of Warrington
"Across the North West, our morale has been encouraged by the growth of St Mellitus North West. This is high quality training with a mission-focus, which is generating new vocations in and to the region; students who genuinely work with a commitment to the unity of the church."
The Bishop of Bolton
"St Mellitus is blessing the church with high quality training for students and ordinands from diverse cultural, educational and church tradition backgrounds, empowering people to serve the church who are rooted in prayer, centred on Jesus Christ and focussed on mission. The Liverpool centre in the NW is encouraging new vocations for a reinvigorated church and we are thankful for this partnership in the gospel."
The Bishop of Plymouth
“We have been delighted to welcome St Mellitus College to the South West and to sense already the energy and mission that their presence is bringing to the region. Our prayer is for students to be equipped to proclaim the good news of Christ in ways that are faithful and contemporary.”
The Bishop of London
“The church is called upon to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel afresh in each generation. St Mellitus College trains students and ordinands who are able to do this in our diverse communities and within the breath of the Church of England.”
