Why Choose Codrington College?

Codrington College is an Anglican Theological College in St. John, Barbados affiliated with the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus. It is the oldest Anglican Theological College in the Western Hemisphere.

Codrington College has a great wealth of theological history supported by a diverse group of Lecturers, Administrators and Assistants.  Persons interested in increasing their knowledge about Christianity and religion will benefit from the programmes and environment at Codrington which have been designed to inspire, challenge you and transform the way you view God, yourself and the world around you. It gives you a better understanding of who you are in the world and your walk with God.

Set on an old plantation, the atmosphere is one of peace and tranquility and the architecture of the buildings is exceptionally beautiful.  Long walks on the grounds to commune with nature and opportunities to overlook the Atlantic Ocean for contemplation are extremely sacred and highly rejuvenating. A place where everyone is supported and is treated like family, a true home away from home.

Self Development

  • Grow Your Faith, Evolve as a Person

Are you where you want to be? Do you want dedicated time to enhance your spirituality? Codrington College can provide that. You’ll be devoting a portion of your life to studying God’s Word, reflecting on his calling for you and furthering your Christianity. Your classes will include opportunities for self-reflection and a deepened commitment alongside your academic approach.

  • Delve into the Ancient Languages

English-language versions of the Bible can fail to completely capture intention of the Word. You can only truly understand God’s beautiful message of love and redemption by studying the languages in which it was originally written. Attending Codrington College provides you the opportunity to start your journey towards learning the original languages of the Bible. You’ll develop a basic understanding of Greek and Hebrew allowing you to grow and evolve as a teacher.

  • Construct and Shape your network 

By attending Codrington, you are placed in a fellowship of trained, supportive religious friends with a variety of unique gifts and talents. At some point in your religious journey, you may face a crisis or just a period where you are constantly searching for answers. You can turn to your fellow colleagues for academic, spiritual or moral support during these times. You may even find employment opportunities through these dynamic relationships. Many students have given praise and gratitude for having met their counterparts at College as they have led to rich and highly rewarding teachings, experiences and ventures.

  • Develop and Enhance Counselling Skills

An important part of ministering is providing psychological support to your congregation. Seminary training provides Biblical education on caring for the mental needs of your parishioners. You’ll learn to combine evidence-based approaches with the time-honored traditions of the church, leading to an integrated framework for helping others. An academically motivated but religiously inspired seminary curriculum will make you a more successful counselor.
