Bishop’s College Financial Needs

We at Bishop’s College are committed to implementing the vision of Bishop’s College (please see the Vision & Mission section of our website) which is to ‘train men and women to be agents of God’s transforming reign in the Church and in the world by offering a contextual theological education, encouraging a creative ministerial formation and inculcating a spirituality of life.’

However, this training, being quite long and intensive, costs money, which both the trainees and their sponsoring churches find hard to bear. The fees that the students and their sponsoring bodies pay us, cover only part of the cost incurred on their training. Hence, the College often has to dip into its reserves in order to provide scholarships to students; as well as to pay for professors; office and library staff; repair and renovations costs; taxes; electricity bills etc.

Furthermore, we seek donations from those of you who would like to help, ‘Train a Presbyter/Pastor’. Your donation to the College will go towards paying for all of the aforementioned. If you harbour an interest in supporting a particular cause, kindly fill in so below.

Upon payment, please allow a minimum of two weeks for the receipt and ‘thank you’ letter to arrive. If you do not receive these within two weeks, kindly inform us via email.
