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.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
