Crosslands

Created by Acts 29 and Oak Hill College, Crosslands aims to provide excellent in-context theological training and resources for churches and church leaders in the UK, Europe and 10:40 window to:

  • Make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ;
  • Equip Christians and Christian leaders in partnership with local missional churches;
  • Nurture a culture of multiplication and church planting;
  • Invest in the next generation of missionary theologians.

Ultimately, the team at Crosslands are passionate to see the cross of Christ reigning over these lands and our students crossing-lands for the gospel.

We are a new kind of organisation, a Flexicademy™ that offers flexible learning and rigorous training, leaning on the church planting experience of Acts 29 with the theological training expertise of Oak Hill. Find out more about us here.

So, whether you are an aspiring leader wanting to study at seminary-level, an ordinary congregation member looking for foundation-level theology or just a new Christian starting out at entry-level, we want to serve you with gospel training when and where you need it.
