Our History

A Remarkable Journey: All Nations at Easneye

The story of All Nations Christian College is a captivating journey that began in 1971 when three missionary training colleges joined forces to establish what is known today as All Nations Christian College at its enchanting Easneye location in Hertfordshire. Since then, our institution has evolved into one of Western Europe's largest centres for missionary and ministry training, offering a wide array of programmes, from undergraduate to postgraduate, validated by the Open University.

A Tranquil Oasis with Global Proximity

Nestled in the serene countryside of Hertfordshire, our campus at Easneye is picturesque and tranquil. Surprisingly, it's only a little over 20 miles from the bustling city of London and equidistant from the vibrant airports of Stansted and Luton. This strategic location is a key benefit to our diverse student body, as over half of them hail from outside the United Kingdom.

Easneye Mansion: A Heritage of Faith and Abolition

As students arrive at 'Easneye Mansion,' they step into a historic residence that was once home to the devout Buxton family. The Buxtons played a pivotal role in the Abolition of Slavery Bill, and several family members dedicated themselves to missionary service in Africa and Japan. Daily family prayers were a cherished tradition held in the Main Hall, imbuing the College with a profound heritage of prayer and commitment to mission.

A Prophetic Prayer Fulfilled

In 1869, as the Buxton family settled into their new home, they received an encouraging letter from "Granny" Hannah Buxton. In her letter, she expressed a heartfelt prayer that the building ...

"... might ever be inhabited by faithful servants of God ... that Christ might be honoured and served there ... and that this place be a fountain of blessing to the church and to the world."

Today, we joyously celebrate the realisation of this prophetic prayer as we continue our mission to train and equip faithful servants of God who make a positive impact on the world.

The history of All Nations Christian College is a testament to our commitment to missionary training, global outreach, and the enduring legacy of faith. We invite you to be a part of our ongoing journey and contribute to the fulfilment of our mission in a rapidly changing world.
