Queen’s College was established in 1841 as The Theological Institute by The Right Reverend Aubrey George Spencer, appointed in 1839 as the first bishop of the Diocese of Newfoundland. His successor, The Right Reverend Edward Feild, reestablished The Institute in a new building and named it Queen’s College in honour of Queen Victoria and The Queen’s College, Oxford, his alma mater. Its prime purpose was then, and is now, to offer training leading to ordination.
Since that time the College has expanded its programs to include persons who wish to pursue the study of theology without of seeking ordination. The Faculty consists of three full-time and eleven adjunct members. A network of trained supervisors, both in Clinical Pastoral Education and Parish Internship programs, also form an integral part of the College’s life.
Queen’s College celebrates its past with thanksgiving and anticipates its future with hope.
The College is incorporated under an Act of the Provincial Legislature which grants it the authority to confer appropriate degrees in theology.
Queen’s College seeks to enable Christian men and women to grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
