  • to be a national provider of a wide range of high quality programmes responsive to the needs of students, including the education, training and professional development of teachers;

  • to sustain an academic community, as a sign of hope, enriched by Christian values and worship, which supports teaching and learning, scholarship and research, encourages the understanding of Christian and other faiths and beliefs and promotes religious and social harmony;

  • to contribute to the educational, religious, cultural, social and economic life of Liverpool, Merseyside, the North-West and beyond.
