Training at Ridley London

Ridley London is Ridley’s teaching centre based at St Andrew’s church in Enfield, providing an opportunity for volunteers, church workers, pastoral assistants, children's & family workers, youth ministers and others to undertake ministerial and theological training while living and working within London.

Students at Ridley London have the options of taking a Taster Module or a Cert HE in Theology, Ministry and Mission.

More about the Taster Module

Whether your ministry is in the workplace, home, church, at the school gate or all of the above, the Taster Module will provide you with theological and ministerial insight to root your practice. The taster module also offers access onto the Cert HE for those wishing to take their studies further.

More about the Cert HE

Whether you are a volunteer looking to expand your knowledge of God or just starting out in full-time ministry, the Cert HE will provide the theological and ministerial foundation you need to develop and grow in your calling.

Students undertaking the Cert HE typically study children's and family ministry, youth ministry, pastoral ministry, old testament, new testament and doctrine; and either an access module in theology and reflective practice (with study skills) or an independent learning project in a topic of their choice, such as ministry in the financial sector.

For those who don’t wish to undertake modules in youth ministry and children's and family ministry, there is an option to undertake the access module and the independent learning project.

Studying at Ridley London

All courses are validated by Durham University and delivered by highly qualified academics and experienced practitioners. Teaching takes place through a mix of formal lectures, group work and personal tutorials.

Study at Ridley London is supported by nine optional training days across the year. These training days provide further engagement with key ministry skills and provide an opportunity to further develop as a reflective practitioner within your area of interest.
