About School of Leadership
This is a two year course for anyone who is called to some form of leadership in the church or in the wider world. The School of Leadership gives you a solid grounding in biblical theology, a deeper understanding of church history, time to consider leadership issues and an opportunity to grow in your personal calling. We combine quality teaching, interactive forums and shared learning in a relaxed environment. To comply with social distancing guidelines, there will be a new option to access the course remotely using online facilities.
If you are interested in receiving formal recognition for your studies, we are starting a new partnership with Cliff College to receive certification via their Short Course programme, run over two years. Once completed, this qualification can contribute towards access onto Cliff College's MA: Missions Course. More details about the certificate, including costs, will be available in September.
I would be delighted to welcome you on to the School of Leadership in September 2020. Please complete the application form (link below) to register your interest. To find out more download our brochure or contact: [email protected]

The Bible has been brought to life even more and the course has given me a passion for a life rooted deeper in scripture. I literally haven't been able to put it down since starting!
This is an adventure you do not want to miss. Don’t think you are too old, too young or haven’t the relevant leadership experience - if you want to get equipped, this is the course for you!
I wanted an opportunity to get to know the Bible a little bit better and to get to know some theological principles I could put into practice
For me School of Leadership is the absolute highlight of each month, and something that I really look forward to. It is such a privilege to sit and listen and learn from experienced, knowledgeable and gifted people, who have 'been there, done that' - and can explain the biblical foundations behind it!
It's not just about learning more and more information, its really looked to provide you with a framework, with which you can understand & apply the Bible
If you want your biblical thinking deepened, your vision broadened and your heart challenged then School of Leadership does all that, whether you are in a formal leadership position or not.
It's challenging & demanding but hugely worthwhile
School of Leadership has been great to be a part of. The teaching is accessible and yet has depth. There is time consistently given to digest the information in groups and then feed back for questions and answers to hear different angles on any given topic. If you can go on the course...then go!
I’d recommend School of Leadership to anyone looking to grow in their understanding of the Bible who is exploring their call to lead others. There was a great balance between Bible learning and practical application.
