At Ridley we believe we are called to be a deep learning resource for the whole Church that is:
- Roots Down (into evangelical convictions)
- Walls Down (to others in the Church)
- Bridges Out (to and from the world)
Walls down... to others in the Church
Ridley’s membership of the Cambridge Theological Federation grounds its ecumenical commitment and brings our students into contact with students from a range of church traditions and theological outlooks.
With an increasing number of Church of England parishes being linked formally with neighbouring congregations from other denominations in Local Ecumenical Partnerships and pioneering initiatives, the challenges and opportunities of ecumenical cooperation are growing in significance. Our membership of the Federation enables students to prepare for this vital element of ministry, while remaining rooted in their own traditions.
