All students are expected to be in regular spiritual direction throughout their time in College and help is available to find spiritual directors. Also, regularly each term, College brings in external spiritual directors, male and female, ordained and lay, for students and partners.
An introductory course in spirituality in the Michaelmas Term gives new students focussed experience of prayer and begins to provide tools for establishing a sustaining prayer life. The weekly sessions act as a lens through which much of the rest of College activity can be understood to be formative, so that students and partners know priestly formation to be about more than only academic pursuits.
Each term there is a Quiet Day, and there is a six-week 'Retreat in Daily Life' in the Hilary Term. The Retreat very much builds on what has been explored in the introductory course.
The College Chaplain spends much of his time each week listening to students and partners, and helping them discover and develop spiritual practices and attitudes which express and sustain their lives as Christian ministers and disciples.
