Former students of ERMC have long maintained the special relationships they established while studying locally and as a community during the regular residential weekends and summer schools.
In recent years, with the cooperation of course staff leadership and its governing body, the ERMC Council, the on-going informal networking has been matched with a formal Alumni Association.
While this is still in its early years, the Alumni have been able to come together for reunions, to support one another, attend seminars and support current students and the work of ERMC as presenters and mentors.
Alumni membership is automatic free for all former students who’ve trained with ERMC for at least one full term (or module). But former students who have become full members of the Alumni Association have helped support the course financially through fees and donations. Details of how to become full members can be found on the Alumni Facebook page.
The ERMC Alumni Association also extends membership to its predecessor courses that helped establish the important values and ethos that lies at the heart of the diverse and missional ministerial training culture of ERMC. Records held for all former students are sadly often out of date or incomplete. So if you’ve not been contacted recently and would like to reconnect with former students or help the course to continue to flourish, please get in touch with the main ERMC office.
