St Mellitus College, Chelmsford

about us

St Mellitus College, Chelmsford offers part-time training for ordinands and licensed lay ministers, as well as part-time undergraduate programmes.

St Mellitus College, Chelmsford is a community of people who combine life, learning and work, as they train for ordination, licensed lay ministry, and study undergraduate theology to deepen their knowledge of Christ and broaden their love of his church. We gather in Chelmsford Cathedral on a Thursday evening for food, conversation, worship, prayer, and learning as our vocations are brought to birth in the nurturing environment of the Cathedral.
