Theological Institute Home



CITI is responsible to the Bishops for ministerial formation and lay training within the life of the Church of Ireland. Under God the Institute seeks to be a learning environment that embodies the values of Christian discipleship and community.  

The Bishops have identified eleven ministerial characteristics which form a filter for all that CITI seeks to deliver – spirituality, theological reflection, pastoral care, vision, leadership, worship and preaching, worship and liturgy, communicating the faith, management and change, administration and vocation (full details of the ordained characteristics and various developmental stages can be found here).  The emphasis therefore is not merely on lectures and assignments, but more holistically on the development of godly persons and competent skills for ministry. 

At CITI students are encouraged to strive for academic excellence. The Institute aims to promote integrated learning across the core disciplines of biblical studies, systematic theology and practical ministry. Students selected for training have a privileged opportunity to explore Christian faith and tradition in an environment of study, prayer and community life. They are expected to conduct themselves with appropriate maturity, astuteness in relationships, and self–discipline.
