Introducing Ordinands to Canon Law

June 11, 2023

The Revd Stephen Coleman, trustee of the ELS, and the Revd Russell Dewhurst, Communications Officer, have been introducing ordinands to the canon law of the Church of England at TEIs (Theological Education Institutions) across the Church of England. The seminar usually lasts three hours, and covers the very basics of canon law: why do we have it? what is it for? what does a newly-ordained curate need to know?

The seminar uses the booklet ‘Canon Law for the Newly-Ordained’ now in its 5th edition.

The photo shows Russell Dewhurst and Stephen Coleman at Ripon College Cuddesdon. Visits to Wycliffe Hall and St Augustine’s College of Theology are also taking place this term. TEIs who might be interested in this course being delivered at their institution are invited to get in touch with us.
