Northern Baptist College is an up-to-date, two hundred years-old learning community. With deep roots in the Northern half of England it seeks to equip women and men for leadership in the mission of God wherever they might be called – particularly in this part of God’s world.
It is NBC’s ministry to prepare others for a range of ministries: nationally accredited ordination in the Baptist Union of Great Britain; local church leadership; pioneer leadership or locally recognized ministry.
NBC has a rich history of innovation and creativity, having pioneered congregation-based patterns of training, ecumenical theological education and an approach to learning that is committed to academic excellence and rooted in the real world.

Northern College provides resources for learning for people throughout the United Reformed Church (and, when appropriate, for the Congregational Federation) and the Moravian Church through a variety of courses.
The college works with existing ministers seeking to develop their knowledge and skills, with those preparing for service as ministers of word and sacraments and church-related community work ministry, as well as lay people seeking to develop their own understanding of faith and mission.
It shares with synods, and with the other Resource Centres for Learning in the United Reformed Church, a vision for learning for the whole people of God.
The college has accepted the challenge of living in an increasingly ecumenical age and in a rich inter-cultural society, and believes that new patterns of collaboration will make Northern College better equipped to serve the churches, and to meet a wide range of opportunities in theological education.

HVC was a Methodist college offering training and formation for those preparing for ministry within the Methodist tradition. It was one of the early partners of LKH. In 2015 decisions made by Methodist Conference meant that HVC closed. However, there continues to be a Methodist presence on the Board of LKH and a number of Methodist students come to study at LKH on the various academic programmes.
Founded in 1854, the College celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2004. It is an independent institution, supported by subscribers and governed by a committee appointed at an annual meeting. It prepares students for ministry and lay leadership positions in the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, and the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church of Ireland.
In addition it has a tradition of providing occasional overseas scholarships for students and ministers from kindred churches overseas, particularly Hungary and Romania (Transylvania). Lay students and ministers seeking continuing ministerial education can also be admitted.

As well as the different church denominational and theological colleges that make up LKH, we also have our own college – Open College. OC offers opportunities for a wide range of people to study contextual theology who are not placed here through their church structures, and offers all the support and guidance needed to study on our academic programmes. The information on this website will tell you all you need to know about studying here at LKH and how to apply for a place with us.
