Ordinands and Readers in Training

If you are accepted as an Ordinand or on the Licensed Lay Ministry programme, your fees will be paid directly to St Augustine’s College of Theology by your sponsoring church. This will cover all your training, teaching session and attendance at residential schools. You should consider the cost of travel to and from your home to your place of study, and the costs of text books and other study materials. Ordinands may claim reimbursement of travel costs from Ministry Division, which also provides a small book grant.
