South West
SMC South West

We have been delighted to welcome St Mellitus College to the South West and to sense already the energy and mission that their presence is bringing to the region. Our prayer is for students to be equipped to proclaim the good news of Christ in ways that are faithful and contemporary.

– Nick McKinnel, Bishop of Plymouth

Through the provision of a new model for ordination training for the South West, the centre is contributing to the resourcing and growth of God’s Church in the region. Ordinands from across the spectrum of Anglican traditions join with lay learners to study theology in the context of worship, unity in the Spirit, and in service to God’s mission to his world.

Revd Dr Donna Lazenby is the Director of St Mellitus College, South West. She is passionate about resourcing the churches of the region. She delights to see individuals becoming more and more the persons they were created to be, as the Spirit forms the saints in Christlikeness and all take up their vocation. Donna loves theology, has planted and led a Fresh Expression of Church, and is passionate about building bridges between the Church and contemporary culture.
