Welcome to The College of Preachers' website. If you're a preacher, you've come to the right place. Because we exist to help you with your preaching ministry! There are three main ways by which we can do this: through publications, events and training.
Our flagship product is our quarterly magazine The Preacher, that contains feature articles of interest to preachers; book reviews; and news from the College. But the most popular pages of the magazine are surely our sermon suggestions, covering every Sunday and red-letter day of the quarter in question? The current edition (pictured) contains ideas for October, November and December, 2013. And subscribing to the magazine makes you officially a "member" of The College of Preachers. Find out exactly what this means by clicking on the PUBLICATIONS menu at the top of the page.
Then, from time to time we run major events for preachers in various parts of the country, lasting one or two days and comprising lectures, seminars and worship sessions. Recent events have taken place in Swanwick, Westminster and Coventry. We usually sell tickets for these events via the shop page on this website; but you have to act fast, because some of our events sell out early - as was the case at Coventry. Well, we're coming to Derby Cathedral (pictured) next year. The date isn't confirmed yet, but watch this space! Read about future College events by clicking on the EVENTS menu at the top of the page.
And our third major offering to preachers is that we can put on bespoke training events in your church, diocese, district or similar. Just tell us what topics you want training in, and we'll send one or more of our experienced tutors to your location to help you run your event. We have about thirty tutors, from varying traditions and denominations; and they live in different parts of the country; so we can meet a wide range of training needs. We publish a list of seminars we've offered before, but we're also open to your suggestions depending on need. For further information click on the TRAINING menu at the top of the page.
Feel free to browse.
When you've delved into the three main sections of our website, if your hunger for information about the College has still not been fully satisfied, feel free to click on other menus at the top of each page to learn about such things as our history, our current news, and what people have been saying about us. We are also required to state that everything we sell through our online shop is sold in accordance with these Terms and Conditions of Business. And the items currently on sale are: The Preacher Subscription, £25; What did you Make of your Sermon, 10 for £15; and How to Listen to Sermons, 10 for £15.
