We are excited about sharing the Gospel in the South West. Our part-time training is Christ-centred, world-engaging and rooted in local communities, with lay and ordained ministers learning generously together.

Training for Readers​

We provide an integrated training programme of academic study, skills in ministry, and personal spiritual formation.

Training for Everyone​

Two programmes for all people, enabling exploration of vocations to ministry and providing academic study of theology.

Why Study with SWMTC?​

We think there are many reasons why you should choose to study with SWMTC, and our students and an independent review agree with us.​

"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."
