The Wilberforce Academy is a membership 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.

You begin your membership with the Wilberforce Academy residential programme, a week-long intensive looking at biblical worldview and culture where you will be equipped to engage in the major issues facing Christians in this cultural moment.

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 2019 are now closed.

“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!”

“It has awakened my heart in areas where I’ve become passive in my faith… – accepting culture and everything with it. I feel like this may set me up for a specific call… and how God wants to use my degree for His glory.”
