Frequently Asked Questions

How does someone arrive at ordination?

Candidates for ordination in the Church of England are sponsored by the bishop of their diocese. Under normal circumstances, bishops will only sponsor candidates who have been recommended for training by a Bishops’ Advisory Panel (BAP). In the first instance, those thinking about a vocation to ordination should speak to their parish priest and to their Diocesan Director of Ordinands (DDO).

What is a PPH?

PPH stands for Permanent Private Hall. The University of Oxford has six PPHs, all of which are Christian foundations, although each has its distinctive ethos and purpose. Fully part of the University, the PPHs operate on a smaller and more intimate scale than the larger colleges and typically offer a somewhat narrower range of subjects.
