In-context theological training and resources for the local church. From new believers to church leaders, Crosslands exists to serve you as you grow in Christ and reach out in mission and ministry, in all of life, whoever and wherever you are.

There are many good theological institutions in the UK and parts of Europe already; we praise God for the work that they do. But Crosslands’ training provision is distinctive in several ways. Our desire and commitment to be grounded in God’s Word, to delight in Christ, and to love the Church and the lost have all shaped our ethos, our curriculum and our blended learning model.

With Foundations courses for everyday discipleship, a Seminary level programme for intensive ministry and leadership training, and Lifelong Learning courses to keep deepening and strengthening your theological understanding, Crosslands training courses and resources are designed to support you across a lifetime of ministry, mission and leadership."
