About Cliff

Cliff College provides 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 ministry among children, young people and the Third Age. We continue to explore new areas, most recently in public theology, the creative arts and family ministry, and are this year launch a new course in sports ministry. 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 better Christians, better evangelists and better disciples of Jesus.
