SMC Chelmsford

As we seek to train men and women for ministry and mission in a rapidly changing context, St Mellitus College offers the Chelmsford Diocese a flexible and inclusive approach for theological and ministerial education and formation. It is very exciting to be part of this pioneering initiative.

– Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford (2010-2020)

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.
