Meals at Ridley
Our catering staff provide meals for the community in our college dining room every weekday. Students are entitled to a set number of free meals a week depending on their residential and training status:
- Resident ordinands and resident sabbatical guests: 3 meals per day, Monday to Friday
- Non-resident ordinands: lunch 5 days a week, and supper on Community Day (Thursdays), when spouses and children are also welcome for lunch and supper free of charge
- Independent students are charged for the meals they eat in the college dining room
All guests - both paying and non-paying - are welcome to eat with the community on weekdays. Meals must be booked in advance on your behalf, so please let us know your requirements prior to your visit, when we can also confirm current charges.
On Fridays as a community we have a 'mission lunch' of soup and bread - the money saved is donated to support our Mission Partners.
Special dietary requirements
A wide range of dietary needs are catered for well at Ridley - when you have accepted a place as a student or booked your time here as a guest, we can discuss any dietary needs you have.
