Graduations 2018

On 17th October 2018 the Federation held its own first graduation ceremony for those students who had completed their courses with the Congregational Institute for Practical Theology.

The festivities were held in the Council House at Nottingham. Richard Bourne (Head of School of Humanities, Religion and Philosophy, York St.John University) gave the main address to the gathering after Catherine Booton (Chair of Course Board) welcomed everyone and Oliver Kinchin (Vice Chair of the Course Board) led prayers.

A level 5 Diploma was awarded to Ruth Leeming and to Susan Rayner. Foundation degrees were awarded to Mark Bailey, Christine Denwood, Colleen Harrison, Sian Lampard, Audrey Lee, Georgina Licquorish-Tee, and William McKee.

I am sure you will join me in congratulating all nine students on a fantastic achievement, something their home churches can be proud of. We also congratulate the training department and all the tutors in this incredible achievement.
