Eastern Regional Training Partnership

What is the ERTP

ERTP-banner-5aOver the past few years, there has been a concerted effort to offer training opportunities to people in an ecumenical context. This not only allows us to make best use of teaching/training resources but for those who attend to have a rich experience of different theological perspectives.

In my role as Training and Church Development Officer I have regular meetings with my Anglican and Methodist colleagues within the Eastern Region Training Partnership

It is from this collaborative work that most of these training opportunities arise.

Other ecumenical training opportunities

As well as the opportunities offered by ERTP there are also ecumenical training opportunities being offered by Westminster College coming out of the Cambridge Theological Federation and these are highlighted on these pages as well.

The feedback from those who have attended the courses offered by ERTP and Westminster has been very positive and helpful. If you decide to attend a course I would be grateful if you would let me know your thoughts on what was offered so that I can feed the information back into the future planning of courses.
