Comments about this page

This photo fills in a little of the family history.  Some people have been slightly confused as to whether my father was on the staff at this time.  He was ordained at Conference in 1949, but remained a student for a further year to complete his Bachelor of Arts in theology.  Hence "Rev. R O Higginson".

One of the staff of the college, of whom my father thought very highly, was Rev. Dr. Philip S Watson.  One of his books, "Anatomy of a Conversion, is a scholarly study of the conversion of John and Charles Wesley.  This is something which I think every Local Preacher on trial should read.  (And every Methodist Minister in training should re-read.)
