About CYM at Ridley Hall
Training for Mission and Ministry with Children, Families and Young People
CYM (Ridley Hall) is part of Lay Ministry training at Ridley Hall Theological College Cambridge. We provide a range of training to meet the needs of those called to ministry with young people, children and families. All of our students are based within churches or other Christian agencies where they are involved in Christian mission and ministry from day one of their studies.
“Very supportive and helpful. I feel like there's been a community created even when we're apart from each other."

~2nd Year CYM Ridley Hall Student~
CYM (Ridley Hall) has over 20 years experience of training children, youth and family ministers. Our graduates have gone on to work in a wide range of roles within local and national Christian organisations, churches and denominations. A number have also gone on to undertake training for ordination, while others have undertaken postgraduate education to follow their calling into teaching, social work and allied professions.
“CYM Ridley Hall prepared me for a lifetime of ministry. I highly recommend it to anyone exploring their calling with children and young people.”

At the heart of all our training is the desire to see people faithfully live out the church’s common vocation to work with the Holy Sprit in bringing God’s kingdom to bear, today.
