The Wilberforce Academy is a 1-week intensive residential programme aimed at students and young professionals with a passion to serve Jesus Christ in a variety of vocations including law, politics, education, media, arts, healthcare, ministry and business.

Our aim is that delegates will be prepared for servant-hearted, Christ-centred leadership in their communities, Churches, and workplaces, having been equipped with a robust biblical framework that guides their thinking, prayers and activity in addressing the issues facing our society.

Beyond the residential programme, you will have access to Wilberforce Academy Refocus events, where you will receive more in-depth teaching, network with other Wilberforce Academy members, and continue to be equipped for Christ-centred service in public life.

Applications for the Wilberforce Academy 2021 are now closed.

“An invitation to lay down one’s life for the cause of Christ with others in thought and deed… it has encouraged me to be a Christian in the public space!”

“I have realised that all legislation is grounded in someone’s morality and it has given me the courage to speak out. This week has been a crucial part of setting the course for my life… life changing!”
