St Hild College is a pioneering theological institution for Yorkshire and the surrounding regions. It has been formed by the merger of The Yorkshire Ministry Course and St Barnabas Theological Centre.

Our training combines rigorous academic theology and mission-focused Christian practice in a community of shared learning. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate awards through Durham University. 

“I’m not in church leadership, but the slant from St Hild is...theology that’s applied to everyday life. I enjoy the fact that on Tuesday mornings I’m putting into practice what I’ve learnt on a Monday afternoon."
