Redcliffe is an interdenominational, evangelical and international College, based in Gloucester but with a global reach.
We seek to be a community of grace where thinking is essential, diversity is acceptable and wisdom is pursued.
Redcliffe's expertise is in four areas, reflected by our course content:
Our postgraduate courses are validated by the University of Gloucestershire. We also offer a wide range of non-validated short courses from a few days to several weeks long.
As an interdenominational college, we adopt the Evangelical Alliance's basis of faith.
Mission today depends on effective partnerships. We are committed to working in partnership with those who share our passion for God’s mission in the world.
Our partners include:
In Victorian England, women who were called by God into cross-cultural
mission had no opportunity to train, yet mission agencies were reluctant to take single women who, in the language
of the time, were not ‘tested’.
In 1892, Redcliffe’s founder Mrs Tottenham began the the
YWCA Testing and Training Home in London with 'twelve candidates, two ladies
and a cook'! Taking an innovative and radical approach to mission training, she
offered practical subjects like first aid and carpentry alongside more 'proper'
subjects such as Church history and the Life of Christ.
Despite early scepticism, the new missionary centre
flourished. During her lifetime Mrs
Tottenham saw hundreds of women from Redcliffe Missionary Training College, as
the centre became known, serving God in many countries.
Since its formation, Redcliffe has seen many changes - but
much of what made Mrs Tottenham's work distinctive still remains. Our courses are regularly updated to meet the
needs of the next generation of people and our studies will equip you
practically as well as helping you to think biblically about the mission
challenges you face.
