St Hild Lincoln

St Hild College and the Diocese of Lincoln are delighted to announce a joint project to create St Hild Lincoln, a new Lincoln centre, offering theological education to students of all denominational backgrounds alongside ministerial training and formation for Church of England Ordinands, Curates and Readers.

St. Hild Lincoln will be a successor to the Lincoln School of Theology, and will offer a range of undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate courses in Christian Theology, Ministry and Mission, delivered through a mixture of in-person learning at the diocesan offices based at Edward King House and online modules. Students will join the wider St Hild community whilst remaining based locally in Lincolnshire and the nearby region. Students are welcome to join us to access formal learning validated by Durham University, or on a more informal basis.

St Hild Principal Daniel McGinnis says, ‘St Hild has a strong background in collaborative working across multiple regions and dioceses, and we are delighted that the Diocese of Lincoln has trusted us in this exciting new partnership. We value the distinctive nature of the Diocese, with its opportunities and challenges, and hope to prepare those in church ministry to flourish across the region, while being part of and contributing to the wider learning environment of St Hild College.’

Hugh Jones, Principal of the Lincoln School of Theology says, “The creation of St Hild Lincoln displays the Diocese of Lincoln’s continued commitment to supporting training for ministry in Lincoln. It will provide Lincoln-based students with the best of both worlds – locally delivered tuition alongside participation in a broad cohort and access to multiple training pathways.”

Anyone within the Diocese of Lincoln who is considering further study or who has begun the discernment process can find more about our training opportunities by emailing or by visiting for further information. 

If you would like to find out more about studying with St Hild Lincoln, there will be open days on 27th January and 20th April 2024. For more information about these or to book a place, please email
