Wollaston Theological College is the recently reconstituted Diocesan College responsible for Theological Education, Formation and Training (EFT) of lay and ordained people in the Diocese. In this, it serves the purposes of the Archbishop of Perth who has ultimate oversight of all such activities in the Diocese.
The Core Purpose of the College is to prepare people for a diversity of Anglican ministries in order to create communities that make Christ’s presence known, experienced and proclaimed.
Wollaston was founded over 50 years ago, as a live-in seminary for young men preparing for ministry as priests in the Anglican Diocese of Perth. As the first Diocese in Australia to ordain women as priests in 1992 and, again, to consecrate the first woman bishop in 2008 (Bishop Kay Goldsworthy), Wollaston has long welcomed women, as well as men, preparing for ministry.
Today, residential facilities no longer exist, but Wollaston's role as a provider of EFT programmes continues in accordance with the needs of the Church in the 21st century.
Wollaston, therefore, is a place where old and young, women and men, ordained and lay members of the Diocese of Perth are educated, prepared and formed for Anglican Ministry.
More information about Wollaston Theological College is available on their website www.wtc.perth.anglican.org.
