Welcome to the College of Transfiguration, NPC - a provincial centre for the training of Anglican clergy.

ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN MINISTRY

The Advanced Diploma in Ministry is a one year programme with a focus on Anglican Studies and Practical Theology. It offers an intense, concentrated and applied interaction with theological disciplines so as to provide graduates with a deep and systematic understanding of current thinking, practice, theory and methodology in relation to ministerial praxis within an Anglican environment. 
 
The Advanced Diploma in Ministry seeks to build on the prospective candidates’ prior engagement with theological studies to equip them to function as acknowledged leaders in church and society, and as agents of transformation.
