"Welcome to the St John's web site. This is a great place to study and train for Christian ministry, and we trust that the site will give you a good idea of the diverse life of the College. Please look around and do get in touch - we'd love to hear from you"
Revd Dr David Hilborn
St John’s offers full time and part time, as well as distance learning courses for ordinands, theology students and clergy.
We also offer courses in counselling, pastoral care, listening skills, vocation and children's and youth ministry.
Set in beautiful grounds near Nottingham, we’re an ideal location for away days.
'I have met so many people over the years for whom the experience of training for ordination at St John's was a hugely spiritual and rewarding experience, with a great sense of community. St Johns' legacy to the Church, as well as the real warmth of support, are valuable ingredients to the exciting developments now being planned.
There has always been a pioneering tradition at St John's, a looking to the future whilst being grateful to God for our past. This means there is a need for close co-operation and collaboration with our neighbours in every sense - local, regional and national - and I look forward to us working together in the months ahead.
It is a privilege to be involved with a superb and committed staff and trustee team to help turn our visions into a reality.'
Chris Smith, chair of St John's Council.
'I am really pleased to be associated with the work of St John's at this particular time. The Church of England is at a crucial moment of history - we grow or we die. St John's is in the business of training leaders who will, under the hand of God the Trinity, be pioneers for growth and agents of the new life of the Spirit.'
The Rt Revd Pete Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden, member of the leadership team of Spring Harvest.
'As someone deeply committed to mission, ministry and leadership training among young people today, I am excited about being involved with St John's in the challenge of growing leaders with vision, understanding and creativity to serve God in a rapidly changing world.'
Mike Pilavachi, Executive Director of Soul Survivor and President
'The importance of ensuring that the future leaders of the Church of England at whatever level are well trained cannot be over-emphasised. I am therefore very pleased to be able to be associated with St John's as it seeks to carry out and develop this vital ministry.'
Philip Carver, Treasurer, St John's Nottingham
