Based at the Collegiate and Parish Church of St Mary, Swansea, the College currently consists of clergy engaged in chaplaincy roles and specialist ministries across the city and County of Swansea.  The College seeks to support and co-ordinate their expertise and responsibilities that flow from these various areas of mission.  While each member is allocated a place in the designated College Stalls in the Chancel of the ancient church of St Mary's, the work of the College is largely about caring pastorally for one another, encouraging and understanding of each other's insights and bringing contemporary urban theology to the life of the Diocese.


The College meets regularly for Eucharist, lunch and fellowship.  Its members include Chaplaincies to the Hospitals, the University, the Prison Service, liaison with the Police and Social Services, work on behalf of the Deaf and Disabled, the Missions to Seafarers and Port of Swansea, the City Centre's Commercial and Retail Outlets, Ecumenical Relations, the Welsh Language community, Inter-Faith issues, the Arts and Cultural opportunities, and the Central Swansea Team Ministry itself which, while based at St Mary's, spreads across five City Centre churches and comprises the Rectorial Benefice of St Mary, Christ Church & St John
