Who are we?

Sion College supports the education and fellowship of Church of England clergy in London. It was founded by royal charter in 1630 after a bequest by the Revd Thomas White.

Initially a library, the College has changed and developed down the centuries to meet the needs of its clergy. Sion College is administered by a Court of Governors elected annually.

What do we do?

Each year Sion College presents a varied programme of events: lectures, seminar suppers, theatre trips, museum and gallery visits, residential visits in England and abroad.

Sion College also offers grants towards study leave and other course costs, as well as residential study at Gladstone’s Library and refreshment at St Mary and Martha Sheldon.
