We are thrilled to share the news that All Nations and Redcliffe College have completed the legal agreement to combine operations. This coming together allows us to minister a gospel of hope and unity in Christ to a world that carries deep loss and a need for reconciliation and restoration. Together, we can bring new courses, fresh ideas and innovation with an even greater platform to serve the nations with our shared team and resources.

The two colleges’ charitable objects are consistent, ensuring confidence in a common purpose and vision. Future joint operations will be run under the All Nations charitable structures. Redcliffe will oversee their current Masters’ courses until their completion, with students remaining part of the University of Gloucestershire. Andy Dipper (Principal & CEO, All Nations) said, “We are delighted that All Nations and Redcliffe are bringing our people, courses and resources together. My prayer is that our combined expertise and shared vision will transform us, our communities and the world.”

We are excited to be working towards validation of a new Masters award, building on the content and global reputation of Redcliffe’s MA in Member Care. Former Vice Principal of Redcliffe, Dr Tim Davy, has been working closely with Dr Jill Ford of All Nations to bring together a new comprehensive programme for life-long learning through new Communities of Practice and advanced short courses, many of which will be accredited as part of Continuing Professional Development.

We also share the exciting news that we are launching the Redcliffe Centre for Research and Consultancy, seeking to apply our world-leading combined expertise in serving the Church and Christian organisations globally.

Ben Stanley (Chairman, All Nations) said, “We thank God for His faithfulness through this season. We are excited about the future, to explore how this merger will ultimately result in many more people and communities coming to worship our Lord Jesus Christ across all cultures. Another sign of the strength of our future together is a joint alumni Task Force being set up to explore how the combined colleges could better serve and reflect the global church, something which recognises the reach and diversity of the combined communities.” Rt Rev Martyn Snow (Chairman, Redcliffe College) said, “How grateful we are that, in a time of enormous change and challenge, we have a good news story and a positive future. We are sure that Redcliffe’s strengths and history will continue to benefit many more people through this coming together with All Nations.”

Ours will be a shared story of people transformed by God through the biblical, practical and spiritual training they receive – a story that continues as they are sent out across the street or the globe to be disciples who make disciples, bringing gospel transformation to God’s world.
