About Us


The Wycliffe story is all about ‘compelling truth in a compelling place for a compelling mission’.

This website will introduce you to our team and show what we can offer you, whether you are considering full or part-time study, or wanting to join us for one of our shorter courses or other teaching events.

Wycliffe Hall was founded in 1877 by a small group of Evangelical Leaders (including the soon-to-become Bishop of Liverpool, JC Ryle).  Their vision was to play a small but significant part in the wider University of Oxford, which after all, has as its motto “The Lord is my Light”.

Half of our student body is Church of England ordinands. The rest of the community is an exciting mixture of postgraduate students and undergraduate apologetic students.

Our overall goal is to send our alumni into the world as leaders, preacher, apologists, church planters and evangelists. We love to see people leave here with a new love for Jesus and his Word, and a deeper commitment to his mission.

Please join us, becoming part of our vibrant worshipping community, and play your own part in this on-going Wycliffe story.
