Thank you for your interest in our online program for overcoming depression. Unfortunately, this program -- written in 1999 -- is now too vulnerable to malicious internet security attacks. We do not currently have the resources to recreate it using modern programming standards. Therefore, we have unhappily had to shut it down. Please check back periodically. We hope to restore this website if we can find funding for a modern reprogramming. More...

Providing professional services in the care and development of Christian Leaders, Missionaries and Organizations.
Claybury International is an organization engaged in the care and development of Christian leaders, missionaries and Christian organizations on a global basis. It was established as The Claybury Trust in 1993 after its principal and co-founder, the Rev Colin Buckland engaged in detailed research into the needs of Christian Leaders. The findings of the research led to the establishment of this ministry. The services provided have been built upon the clear needs that both experience and research have raised. Since1993, Claybury has been used widely in the UK and around the world. In any year, our staff can be found in as many as 15 different countries.
