Appointment of new Principal
We are delighted to announce that the new Principal of SWMTC is to be Ven. Dr Mark Butchers, Archdeacon of Barnstaple.
Mark has served in parishes in London, Devon and Oxford. His PhD from King’s College, London explored the influence of theology of resurrection in the theology of creation.
Mark brings deep pastoral wisdom and a familiarity with the Church in the South West as well as theological expertise and teaching experience.
Mark will take on the role of Principal in September.
Training for Everyone
Two programmes for all people, enabling exploration of vocations to ministry and providing academic study of theology.
"My experience of formation with SWMTC, firmly rooted in my home church, in work, in family, and in study has been incredibly positive. Each has informed the other, readying me and equipping me for 21st century ministry."
