Visiting Cliff College

Last Friday I visited Cliff College and met with staff, students and members of the Learning Network who are now based here. I was warmly welcomed by the Principal, Revd Dr Chris Blake and during the day met with several other staff members. They were all clearly committed and enthusiastic and Cliff is offering a variety of courses, ranging from the highly academic to short courses, summer school, sabbatical studies and retreats. I met with students on the BA and MA courses over coffee and lunch, this is clearly a friendly, supportive and well supported student community.

 Among those based, or with bases at Cliff are Tony Moodie, Meg Prowting and Ed MacKenzie; all staff in the Discipleship and Ministries Learning Network.

Chris showed me the newly developed en suite residential accommodation. Who wouldn't want to stay here in modern, comfortable rooms in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak National Park?


Cliff is one of the two Network Hubs and offers a wealth of scholarship, skill and expertise to the church. I enjoyed my visit, look forward to being there again for the Festival next year. and

came away wanting to sign up for several of the things on offer!
