It continues to fulfil that function, but now awards degrees in many arts subjects, though specialising in theology. It was established as part of the university in 1927.

Regent's Park College is known for its friendly atmosphere and strong sense of community. Its character stems from Christian roots and while it still trains men and women for ordained ministry in Baptist churches, is thoroughly open and ecumenical in outlook. The college imposes no religious test or obligations on those who are not preparing for ordination, but offers students the opportunity, if they so wish, to explore and develop a 'Christian mind' about the world and academic learning, especially through the activities of its Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture.


Regent's houses the Angus Library. The Library contains more than 70,000 items relating to the life and history of Baptists in Britain and the wider scene. The Library unites the original collection of historical materials gathered by Principal Joseph Angus in the nineteenth century with the libraries of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Baptist Historical Society, and the archives of the Baptist Missionary Society. It offers printed books, pamphlets, church minute books, manuscript letters and journals from the late sixteenth century to the present century. It contains the largest collection of Baptist periodicals anywhere.


"Regent's Study Guides" are a series of books which are characterised by the concern of the College to integrate careful theological thinking with the practice of pastoral care and service in society. Covering areas of biblical study, Christian doctrine and spirituality, the Guides relate their subject to current affairs, the arts, science, and a Christian life-style for the present age.
