Spurgeon's College registration approved by Office for Students 

Spurgeon's College2Spurgeon's College has announced that the Office for Students (OfS) has approved its registration. The OfS, the higher education regulator in England, had declined the College's registration in August, and has now approved a new application. 

In a statement on its website, the College said: 

Spurgeon’s College is pleased to announce that the Office for Students (OfS), has approved our registration. We are delighted that following this decision we can continue with increased vigour on our core mission to train men and women for Christian ministry.

This decision comes off the back of considerable effort from our staff, Governors and wider family. We would like to thank everyone including our friends in Parliament, the House of Lords and the wider Christian community for their efforts and prayers. 

Spurgeon’s College, one of the UK’s leading Christian Colleges and a Baptist institution with almost 100 years’ history in Croydon, London, has a distinguished and ongoing history of quality theological education. The College has been training Baptist ministers for over 163 years and our alumni are working across the world to support their communities. We thank the OfS for working with us in a constructive way on this matter. 

Following the initial decision in August, Baptists Together moved quickly to support the College.
