Overseas links

Cranmer Hall is an international community. Christians from a wide range of countries have studied and continue to study here, gaining much and giving much back in return.

Whatever country you come from, you are welcome to study at Cranmer Hall. Contact us for more information.

In previous years members of Cranmer Hall have experienced mission and ministry in places as far afield as South Africa, New Zealand, Bermuda, the USA, Eire, Tanzania, Uganda and India. We warmly encourage ordinands to make this part of their training and have special funds set aside to facilitate international placements.

Cranmer has particularly strong links with a number of institutions and countries:

Cranmer Hall and the Wesley Study Centre have established a link with the Theology Department of Duke University , North Carolina, USA.

As Duke has one of the best theology departments in the United States and Durham has the much acclaimed Department of Theology and Religion, the two Universities have much to offer one another.

Ordinands training at Cranmer Hall may be eligible for semester or shorter placements in a range of ecumenical contexts in Switzerland, Rome and Germany, subject to Ministry Division agreement and funding. Candidates from other churches can apply for these placements on an understanding that the sponsoring Church will provide the scholarship.

Semester study and shorter placements are available at:

The Graduate Ecumenical School at Bossey, Switzerland: https://institute.oikoumene.org/en

The Venerable English College in Rome: http://www.vecrome.org/

The Pontifical Beda College, Rome: http://www.bedacollege.com/

Foyer Unitas, Rome (This is primarily for female ordinands): http://www.laycentre.org

Germany: Ministry Division (under the terms of the Meissen Agreement) offer a scholarship scheme to study in a theological faculty or ordination institute in Germany. Unlike the scheme in Bossey and Rome, the opportunity in Germany will need to be tailored for each candidate and usually requires the student to be fluent in academic German.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please let the Warden’s Office know.

In cooperation with Durham diocese’s ‘Lesotho Link’, Cranmer welcomes ‘Mohapi Scholars’, ordinands from the Southern African state of Lesotho come to Cranmer to study theology and ministry. The current Mohapi Scholar is Obed Sebapalo.

The Edith Jackson Trust (EJT) supports the development of education in southern Sudan. Working in partnership with the Episcopal Church of Sudan (ECS) we aim to help people of all faiths and none.

The Trust is concentrating its efforts initially on Rokon where there is a particularly urgent need for providing education following years of civil war. The war ended in 2005, but Rokon was on the ‘front line’ and was devastated socially and economically. As refugees continue to return there is a desperate need for education facilities to help renew the area and give people hope and confidence in the future.
