People come from a wide variety of backgrounds – in recent years there have been up to 19 different nationalities amongst the staff and students. Christians come here from all over the world – the Middle East (some from Muslim backgrounds) and South East Asia, Africa and America – and each brings a slightly different experience.
Some come from churches that are expressly ‘conservative’ (emphasising the importance of teaching from the inspired scriptures). Others come from ‘charismatic’ congregations (emphasising the reality of God’s Spirit at work today). Still others come from communities with a more ‘contemplative’ style (emphasising the value of praying in ways which draw upon the riches of our historic roots).
When you come to Wycliffe, you will find that you have a valuable contribution to make, but that you are also part of a much larger whole.
