The college was founded in 1810, and became a licensed hall of the university in 1957. It also trains men and women for ordained ministry among Baptist churches in Great Britain and overseas. Regent's Park College traces its roots to the formation of the London Baptist Education Society in 1752. The impetus for founding the college arose from the fact that only members of the Church of England were given places at ancient universities. The institution was renamed to Regentís Park Collge, after it had moved to Holford House in Regentís Park in 1855. In 1927 the college moved to Oxford, thus 1927 is given as date of foundation within some sources. Fish, cross, bible and the motto, meaning ďThe Lord (is) God)" refer to the Christian (Baptist) background.
