Bedford's Christian Heritage

Bedford College was launched in 1944 by the Baptist Churches in NSW to meet Australia’s
great emerging social needs caused by the impacts of World War II. People needed the training to join the rapidly changing workforce. With a benevolent heart, the Baptist movement donated some funds necessary to start this initiative to support people to find independence, employment, and success.
Nearly 80 years on, Bedford College maintains this strong desire to help equip people to access great opportunities through higher education. The directors believe through studying at Bedford student’s also gain insights into a Christian Worldview. 
The College is proud of its heritage and strives to treat everyone with kindness, respect, fairness and honour.
