Friends of Moorlands gathering together

The heart behind Friends of Moorlands

We greatly value the support that comes from our many friends across the world. We are truly appreciative of our friendships in the various ways they’ve been formed. Whether you have studied with us, supported us, visited us, invested in us or prayed for us, we want to bring all of these wonderful connections together as Friends of Moorlands.

As we reflect on the past, we are thankful for all that God has done and for the faith stories that we can celebrate.
We desire to build upon the inheritance that we have received from those that came before us as we continue to invest in equipping Christians passionate about Jesus Christ with the knowledge and skills they need to impact the Church and wider world. 

The ongoing encouragement of our friends is really appreciated as we continue to add more people to the Moorlands family to study applied theology. Support comes in many different ways and we would ask you to prayerfully consider the best option for you. We thank God for the many Friends of Moorlands that we already have and for the new ones that we are looking forward to connecting with.
