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 our new Ordinand Library.

Ordinand Library

All Anglican ordinands in the UK and Ireland are being offered FREE access to a new library app sponsored by Clergy Support Trust. 

Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK) and Inter-Varsity Press (IVP) logos

A partnership with the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge and Inter-Varsity Press in the UK, the app 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 of £120 per year will be 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
