WMC: January 2017
Cliff College, Sheffield, one of the training colleges used and supported by the Methodist Church, has announced a new partnership with the Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF), who are based in Abingdon.
The BRF is a leading ministry organisation in the United Kingdom, best known for its support, resourcing and enabling of the Messy Church initiative.
The two organisations hope to develop important training resources for the Church and lay leaders, with a particular focus on sharing the Christian message.
The partners have previously worked together in providing courses and resources, and this new announcement solidifies the relationship, enabling further work to be done.
Upcoming projects will include newly developed certificate programmes in Bible Engagement, and guest speakers from the BRF speaking at the annual Cliff Festival, in May.
The Revd Dr Stephen Skuce, Acting Principal of Cliff College and Director of Scholarship Research and Innovation for the Methodist Church, said: "We are really pleased that Cliff College is in partnership with the BRF.
"In recent years, the BRF has helped us to develop excellent materials and programmes, such as those for Messy Church, Who Let the Dads Out? and The Gift of Years.
"These tools have been key in contemporary evangelism in the Church and solidifying our link together will help us to develop further resources and opportunities for mission."
Richard Fisher, Chief Executive of the Bible Reading Fellowship, said: "This partnership is a natural extension of the work we already do. We are excited at the prospect of being able to teach, train and impact more people through Cliff's expanding ministry and mission-focused courses."
