Interesting events at Wycliffe

Wycliffe has been interesting in the last few years for how it has fared under Richard Turnbull. Open evangelical Elaine Storkey resigned. Many complained about a very hierarchical management style. Turnbull has made many criticisms of other training methods apart from traditional and full-time, but it seems as though the theological education that Wycliffe offers is not perhaps all it should be. There are questions marks over the teaching of pastoral and practical theology.

The college doesn't seem to attract many female ordinands. Out of 66 ordianands, only nine are women.

The CEN reports on the inspection of Wycliffe, as does Anglican Mainstream.

I wonder what will happen.
