About Ridley Hall, Cambridge

Ridley Hall is an Anglican theological college established in 1881 in the heart of Cambridge, England. We offer full-time residential training for ordained ministry in the Church of England and training for a variety of Christian lay ministries in both church and non-church contexts.

The Ridley community also welcomes those who want to study theology part-time for personal growth or to engage in further study or research, and people from across the world who are taking time out from their daily lives for refreshment, writing or research in the form of a sabbatical, study leave or retreat.

Together we seek to grow in Christ-like character through worship and prayer, eating together and socialising, in an atmosphere of friendship, grace, honesty and humour.
