About The College of Preachers
We are a UK registered charity (no. 220764) and in 2017 we joined the Hymns Ancient and Modern group.
We are here to help preachers.
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.
We're a network of preachers, some experienced and some new to the task, ordained and lay, from different denominations and traditions, drawn together by a shared belief that good preaching matters, who want to help each other fulfil their preaching ministry.
We warmly welcome others wanting to join us to develop and share their gifts.
To individuals... we offer varied opportunities to enrich preaching, in particular through a variety of resource material - magazine articles, sermons and reviews - in print and on line
our events - occasions to meet leading preachers from this and other countries, to attend workshops run by College tutors, and to share fellowship and experiences with other preachers
open seminars for basic and more advanced preaching tuition, and discussion of important issues for preachers.
We regularly work with... other bodies engaged in the training of clergy and lay preachers, to whom we are able to offer tutors with special skills in different aspects of preaching who can contribute to training programs and events already planned seminars and workshops prepared and run by the College, tailored to meet specific learning needs.
We believe that... preaching is God's calling faithful preaching is vital to the life of the church and the sharing of the gospel preaching should be fresh, biblical and directly relevant to contemporary experience and events there are different ways of preaching and it is important to explore and develop them all preachers can learn from each other.
