Photo of Oak Hill graduates on graduation day 2018

We were delighted to confer awards on 55 candidates at our annual graduation ceremony held on Saturday 6 October.

Rev’d Hugh Palmer, Rector of All Souls, Langham Place, delivered an address on ministry for today’s world to an audience of 200 alumni, parents, graduands and dignitaries.

Dan Strange, the College Director of Oak Hill, says: ‘Graduation is always an encouraging day of thanksgiving, celebration and challenge. Hugh Palmer spoke powerfully from 1 Thessalonians on Paul’s model of sharing not only the gospel of God, but our lives as well.’

Cruising blissfully down an empty M1 on a Friday morning, friend in tow, M&S caterpillar snacks on the go, and Sarah McMillan blasting out on Spotify, I had no idea what to expect from my first week at Oak Hill whatsoever.

My heart started pounding that little bit more as we drove through Cockfosters, went over the roundabout and began to turn into the Oak Hill site. As the big, white building loomed ahead, I thought of all I’d left behind me: friends, nearby family, a job I loved, dogs, my favourite barista. What will life be like for me moving into a leading theological institution in the UK?

This and other questions floated through the ether of my being as I began to unpack and get settled. Two weeks later, as we approach the end of welcome week, the first week of term, where we...

We are delighted to announce that from the end of this academic year, Mark Pickles will become the new Director of the North West Partnership. Given Mark’s great contribution here, we are very sorry to see him leave. But we are excited about his new appointment, which will strengthen Oak Hill’s relationship with training in the north-west.

We are also delighted to announce that Johnny Juckes will be teaching the Gospel Driven Leadership module, bringing his 30+ years of ministry experience to the programme. In addition, the Revd Dave Walker will be involved in teaching Anglican Ministry. Dave is Vicar of Christ Church North Finchley, and previously graduated with an MTh from Oak Hill in 2007.

Please pray for Mark in his new role, and for Johnny and Dave as they take up these important...

Photo of David Wheaton

A personal reflection on the life and ministry of David Wheaton, former Prinicpal of Oak Hill, from Mike Butterworth, who was a colleague of David’s at Oak Hill from 1980, and a friend to the end.

One of my first memories of David is of his responding to a request to move furniture after a meal in the dining room, and that was typical of our loved and respected Principal. Other scenes include: his leading small groups of people from college to do a church weekend mission; a how’s-it-going walk soon after I’d started at the college; his leading daily morning prayers with domestic staff; his response to a personal criticism (to my mind unjustified, subjective and rude) from a colleague: ‘Thank you… for those observations.’

The qualities that characterized David and that are...
