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 and young people.
We continue to explore new areas, most recently in public
theology, the creative arts and family 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.

Queen's like difference! At Queen's we recognise that God made
the world to be full of creativity and difference. Our differences

more deeply, and learn how to serve God's people. If you are
passionate for God's work in God's world, then find out more about

Preparing for ordained ministry is a challenging, enriching and
transforming experience. The Centre for Ministerial Formation in
Queen's brings together those students training for recognized,
public ministry in the Church of England, the Methodist Church,
Wesley Holiness Church and the Church of God of Prophecy.
It offers training in full-time and part-time modes, including
residential, part-residential and non-residential forms. Queen's is
responsible for Initial Ministerial Formation of Methodist Deacons
and Presbyters, but also offers a range of other programmes that
are available to both lay and ordained
