Ministry Formation Programme

Trinity College undertakes on behalf of the wider Methodist Church of New Zealand to form students for ministry in a variety of ways:

  • Through course work in its designated study programmes
  • Through corporate worship
  • Parish or ministry placement
  • Spiritual formation
  • Denominational learning
  • Learning the arts and practices of ministry


Students who are accepted as candidates for ministry are required to be part of the ministry formation group which meets monthly over a weekend.  They will gather with student colleagues for a variety of activities and specific input.  They will assist in the planning and leading of various aspects of the College Worship Service each month under the oversight of Trinity College staff.
