St Mellitus College, North West

about us

St Mellitus College, North West offers full-time context-based ordination training, full and part-tme undergraduate programmes, and part-time postgraduate study.

St Mellitus College, North West was formed as a partnership with the five North West Dioceses of Blackburn, Carlisle, Chester, Liverpool and Manchester in 2013. It is the first full-time ordination college in the North West since St Aidan’s College, Birkenhead (1846-1969). As such we draw on the richness of St Aidan’s heritage to equip people from all walks of life for ministry and leadership. We gather from a radius of 150 miles on Mondays for worship, prayer, teaching, food and fun.

Revd Dr Jill Duff is Director of St Mellitus College, North West. Jill teaches New Testament and mission, and is passionate about pioneering and church planting. After a career in science and the oil industry, she was ordained in 2003. She has served in urban parishes in the Liverpool Diocese, and as a pioneer minister and a school chaplain. She is married to Jeremy, and is a mum to two boys.
