Cliff Local

Welcome to Cliff Local: Sponsored by The Methodist Church, and in partnership with the Learning Network, Cliff College is looking forward to resourcing mission and ministry across the UK through our Cliff Local initiative.

What is Cliff Local?: Cliff Local is a year long process, which includes teaching input offered by Cliff College, plus individual and group questions to reflect on supported by the regional Learning Network team. Cliff Local is designed to strengthen mission and ministry in some of our more outlying regions of the UK, and facilitate the development of a locally networked ‘community of practice’ of lay leaders.

Where is Cliff Local going?: With a pilot course already delivered in the South West during 2019, we already have plans in 2020-2021 for three further Cliff Local courses in the Isle of Man, Shetland and north Yorkshire. Are we coming to your region? See details below.
