Cliff College provides theological education and training with a particular focus on mission and evangelism. Historically, Cliff was a Methodist Lay Training college. Today our student body is both lay and ordained and from a range of denominational backgrounds.
The College’s defining characteristic has always been training in mission and evangelism and we consider ourselves to be at the cutting edge of contemporary missional thinking. In recent years, we have prioritised evangelism in contemporary culture, pioneer ministry and fresh expressions, Evangelical and biblical theology, and mission and ministry among children, young people and the Third Age. We continue to explore new areas, most recently in public theology, the creative arts, family ministry, and sports ministry, and have a growing number of vocational subject areas within our Short Course programme as we seek to develop reflective practitioners. We recognise the full diversity of theological opinion in these studies.
Our motto ‘Christ for all – all for Christ’ sums this up. We want to train people from all walks of life to be more effective Christians, more effective evangelists and more effective disciples of Jesus.
