Our Vision

St Hild College is a pioneering theological institution for Yorkshire and the surrounding region. 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 validated by Durham University through the Common Awards programme. Our faculty brings together a strong team of lecturers and regional practitioners with research expertise in Biblical theology, doctrine and history, pastoral care, leadership and mission. 


Our vision is to offer Christlike formation that equips missional leaders for the whole church.

  • We exist to serve the whole church. We bring together Anglicans, Baptists and students from independent churches in a generous community of mutual learning.


We provide four streams of formation:
