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 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.

The Queen's Foundation
Queen's like difference! At Queen's we recognise that God made the world to be full of creativity and difference. Our differences help us to know ourselves better, see God more clearly, love God 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 what we can offer.
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
