For all Anglican ordinands training in the UK and Ireland, including those who are just starting their studies and those who have previously received a financial grant from us, support will also be available for your training through the ebook Library.
July 2019 Update
Due to your requests and its popularity, the Ordinand Library is being renamed as the Clergy Support Trust Library because it is being extended to include all curates in training (Initial Ministerial Education Phase 2, or IME2).
These updates will occur before your free annual subscription renewal is needed so you can have uninterrupted access, and the existing apps will be updated.
So if you have already registered, you don't need to do anything. If you are a curate and haven't yet got the library, please come back in about a month and you will be able to register as an IME2 curate.
Clergy Support Trust Library
All Anglican ordinands in the UK and Ireland are being offered FREE access to a Library website and apps sponsored by Clergy Support Trust.
A partnership with the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and Inter-Varsity Press in the UK, the Library covers almost 1,200 titles in e-book format from the SPCK/IVP/Apollos back catalogue of theological resources and other Christian books.
This library resource's cost (worth £120 per year) is being supported by Clergy Support Trust to make it FREE for the duration of your ordination training through the support of Clergy Support Trust.
Download as many books as you want. New SPCK, IVP and Apollos titles will be added as and when they are published. Notable authors include:
- Tom Wright
- Kenneth Bailey
- Richard Rohr
- Rowan Williams
The Clergy Support Trust Library is available via web browser, Apple (iOS) and Android after you fill out the subscription form:
