About

The Wilberforce Academy is a 1-week 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 and business.

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

Members will be invited to five days of learning, prayer, worship and fellowship together. Teaching will focus on the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of Christian involvement in public life, led by leading Christian thinkers and practitioners.

Following the Academy delegates will be invited into a network of Wilberforce Academy members, where they will have access to further resources and teaching events throughout the year. In particular we host 3 Refocus Days a year for continual teaching and fellowship with all Wilberforce Academy alumni.

We hope that Academy members will develop lasting friendships with peers and mentors that will be a source of support, encouragement and accountability for years to come.
