A message from the Principal

Welcome to to Wesley College!  The website gives you a taste of our vibrant ecumenical community.

Established over a century ago for the training of Methodist Ministers, Wesley College is, in its present form, still at the forefront of training for Christian Ministry. The largest regional provider of theological education for the Methodist Church, Wesley College offers opportunities for Foundation Training and Ministerial Training for Methodist Presbyters and Deacons, as well as for a variety of lay ministries. With its ecumenical staff and student body, Wesley College is also an important ecumenical provider of theological education for the wider Church and region, committed to excellence in all that we do.

Combining its rich heritage with cutting edge educational opportunities, Wesley College is an affiliated College of the University of Bristol.  We offer students from the UK and from the international community first rate opportunities to obtain a broad-based theological education ranging from entry level qualifications to postgraduate degrees with the very best of teaching.  A wide range of specialist tutors, including research tutors of international standing, supplement the core staff.  The College offers one of the best specialist theological libraries in the South West of England and its unique archives attract world class scholars to the College.

Set within its own extensive grounds, surrounded by attractive woodland and with its own purpose-built accommodation, Wesley College is also the ideal site for day or residential conferences, or simply for those who wish to come for a short stay or study leave.

In short, Wesley College offers something for everyone. Whether you are pursuing an approved training course for Ministry, or returning to education simply out of interest, Wesley College offers an excellent learning environment for both full-time and part-time, residential and non-residential students.  We hope to see you here soon!
