About Us

St John’s offers full time and part time, residential and distance learning courses for ordinands, theology students and clergy.

We also offer courses in counselling, pastoral care, listening skills, vocation and youth ministry. 

Set in beautiful grounds near Nottingham, we’re an ideal location for away days.

"St John's prepared me well for a fulfilling and varied ministry under God.  As I join the Council I hope I can give something back as a way of thanking Him.  But it will continue to become a very different college from the one I knew.  The Lord is doing a 'new thing' and there's no more exciting place of its kind - a pioneering college for people who want to be pioneers for the Gospel."

The Rt Revd David James, former Bishop of Bradford and 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
