Is it time to do something new?

We know: You're busy. You haven't opened a textbook in years, much less written an essay.

Wouldn't hurt to see what's on offer, though, would it? Learning is hugely generative, with personal, professional and vocational rewards.

But don't take our word for it. Here's what our students say:

'Coming to Sarum College, I think, has given me a real experience of being a proper student...we come from different theological backgrounds and we just got on so well. We've met over the meals, breakfast, lunch, dinner... I think being a theological community, even though there is quite a freedom to explore, somehow there's that sense that you're dealing with things that are really important for you. I think all of us who are doing it are doing it because we care about these issues and we really want to explore them for ourselves.  It’s not just something that we're doing at arms’ length and are distant to us.'

'Sarum College has been part of an amazing journey for me.'

Book a place on our free Taster Day on 21 March 2020 and see how Sarum College can nourish your spirit.

In Holy Week 2020 at Sarum we have a terrific line-up of speakers responding to the narratives of Palm Sunday to Maundy Thursday. Sessions will cover the challenges facing the planet, the biblical response to the crisis and imaginative solutions, including a bit of foraging with Miles Irving of Forager Ltd

Concession rates start at £50 per day with a discounted B&B rate for residential stays. Book now to secure your place.
