About

Welcome!

I hope you enjoy browsing our website, and get a sense from it of who we are. I hope, too, that, when lockdown is over, you’ll pay us a visit and we’ll have the chance to meet you and show you more of what we are about. 
Wycliffe is a Christian academic community that is part of the University of Oxford. Our motto is Via, Veritas, Vita – the Way, the Truth and the Life. 
Truth
As academics, we believe in pursuing truth wherever it leads. We aim at the most rigorous thinking, teaching and research. It is our experience that people are crying out for depth, and we want both to give that to our students and to equip them to provide it to others. 
Way
‘The Way’ was an early term for the Christian Faith. As followers of that Way, we believe that all truth will ultimately lead to, because all truth comes ultimately from, Jesus Christ. We are therefore a worshipping community and a missional community – our worship and our mission being enriched and enlarged by an understanding of God that has been deepened by our studies. We train women and men for ministries of every kind, including ordained ministry in the Church of England.
Life
In our life together as a community, we enjoy getting to know one another, from a vast range of different backgrounds and contexts – and we long to attract, welcome and celebrate an ever-greater diversity. We try to support one another and to be enriched by the different gifts and experiences of others. We enjoy the arts and sport and other leisure activities together.
