Abstract

Abstract Over recent years the Church of England has been introducing university validated programmes for the ministerial education of its clergy. By drawing on the experience of one region in delivering such a programme, this article identifies a number of tensions in the church’s relationship with higher education and explores how critical academic study might be better understood as a resource for ministerial formation. The article also raises issues for the validating universities arising out of their partnership with church institutions, and argues that both church and academy alike could benefit from a reappraisal of their aims and values as public institutions in the light of their shared involvement in theological education for the church’s public ministers.
