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)
Roots down... into evangelical convictions
The evangelical basis of the college is clear in its founding Deed of Trust and over the years many well known evangelical Anglican leaders have trained at Ridley.
At a time when evangelical life and witness is burgeoning within the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion, Ridley is well-placed to serve this constituency as well as the wider Church.
In an increasingly disparate world of styles and traditions, Ridley draws from a range of evangelical constituencies, both charismatic and non-charismatic, and we welcome students from a variety of theological backgrounds.
