As we launch the Annual Fund appeal for the coming academic year, student Sam Carter tells us about Books Down Day, which is one of the projects that the Annual Fund supports by providing supplies to allow ordinands to take part in College sponsored missionary activity in Cambridge.
Our Annual Fund is used to fund additional developmental courses that build on our holistic training method, which couldn’t be afforded otherwise.
One of the bigger expenditures that the Annual Fund paid for this year was our new servery counter, Tabgha. Your support raised £8,600 in total, over half of the total cost, and allowed us to afford the purchase.
The second ‘Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute’ took place at Trinity Hall Cambridge in July.
The official launch of the Newbigin Centre for Gospel and Western Culture took place on July 16th as part of the second annual 'Lesslie Newbigin Summer Institute'.
We were delighted to hear this week of the Revd Liz Adekunle's appointment as the new Archdeacon of Hackney.
This year’s Moule Day was a little different. Instead of hosting it within the grounds of Ridley Hall, we were able to use the Lady Mitchell Hall on the Sidgwick Site of the University of Cambridge which allowed us to invite many more people.
We are delighted to announce the appointment of the Revd Dr Michael Volland as Director of Context-based Training. His responsibilities will span the training of all Ridley ordinands and iCYM students, as well as the teaching of other Federation students. He will also be working with dioceses and partner agencies in the development of our contextual training. He will move to Cambridge with his family at the end of August.
