Our Vision

At Wycliffe Hall we have a vision for our ministerial training and how that, and we, impact our wider communities, Oxford, the Church and society.

Ministerial Training

Christ's love compels us...

  • To Train Lifelong Disciple-Makers...
       Passionate about being Jesus' disciples and disciple makers
  • In Community...
       A vibrant multicultural community  the best place to learn
  • With Excellent Bible-Centred Teaching...
       The Bible infuses all that we are
  • In A Thought-Provoking City.
       Oxford - A world centre of thought leadership

Our influence

Christ's love compels us...

  • To Renew Christian Prayer...
       Prayer to empower our mission and for Christ to be present in our churches
  • To Renew Christian Character...
       For our communities to be places of faithful, trustworthy people of integrity
  • To Renew Christian Preaching...
       Sharing the news of Christ with freshness, relevance and humility
  • To Renew Christian Thinking.
       Helping the Church respond thoughtfully to the world's questions and so shape society and culture 


To help us work out how we can do that more effectively, and what might be the many small steps needed to implement and embody that vision, we have invited eminent visiting speakers to address one of the four aims.
