The Church of England and Ridley

Within the Church of England, Ridley’s culture of constructive engagement with difference - embodied in its membership of the Cambridge Theological Federation - is prized. Ridley ordinands are generally welcomed as deployable team players, with a nuanced embracing of their Anglican identity. As such, our students stand in the tradition of the 1967 NEAC at Keele and its defining emphasis on responsible citizenship within the Church of England, as an alternative to isolationism.
