York School of Ministry

York School of Ministry is now welcoming new students for September!

York School of Ministry offers theological and ministerial education on behalf of the Diocese of York, for lay ministries, those in discernment for lay and ordained ministry and those who would like to explore more about their faith and discipleship.

Feedback from our students over the last two years suggests that being part of YSOM is both faith enhancing and life affirming and not only widens personal horizons, but opens to the door to a more fulfilled and active ministry in the church.

YSOM is now recruiting for September 2020 with courses being offered initially online with a move to a blended learning approach with additional face to face teaching as the social distancing rules are relaxed. 

Our new leaflets can be downloaded from our website by  clicking here.
