Scottish Episcopal Institute (SEI)

The Scottish Episcopal Institute forms those preparing for a variety of authorised ministries in the Scottish Episcopal Church, lay and ordained, and in the United Reformed Church in Scotland, shaping vibrant missional ministers for today’s world. It encourages an ethos of ongoing learning for all involved in ministry, both through its oversight of Continuing Ministerial Development and in the encouragement and resourcing of lifelong enquiry in a learning church.

SEI has a Provincial Office, based in Edinburgh, and a dispersed operation throughout all seven dioceses of the SEC.

This site includes details of our provincial and diocesan staff.

SEI’s work is overseen by the Institute Council.
