Mission on the Margins

St Hild College and Urban Life

Urban Life facilitates ‘Mission on the Margins’ which is a learning track for people who are currently, or about to, engage missionally within marginalised contexts. Through it they seek to help participants understand their contexts and, by drawing on the resources of the Christian tradition, reimagine what life might be like there.

The learning track is hosted by St Hild College and can be accredited at masters, post-graduate diploma or certificate level. Alternatively, it can be audited without the requirement of fulfilling any assessments. For more information about the academic aspects of the track visit

Students come from a range of backgrounds and church traditions. Some are preparing for a form of ministry, whilst others are currently church leaders or work for projects or charities. You can watch a student’s reflections on the track here.
