Bishop of Edmondsbury and Ipswich

 

martin seeley“…We know we can expect ordinands from the Old St Pancras scheme to have a good grounding in the nature of the Church and parish ministry, and in the spiritual disciplines that sustain those in ordained ministry. The scheme’s value lies in the high quality of supervision from the clergy of the parish, and the rigorous engagement with the ordinands’ personal as well as ministerial development. Each ordinand who has come to Westcott comes with a strong and tested sense of vocation, and an enthusiasm for training. For us this scheme is among the best available in the country, and we would wish more could have this type of opportunity before they enter theological college.”

The Revd Canon Martin Seeley, Bishop of Edmondsbury & Ipswich, former Principal of Westcott House.
