DDO Days

Ridley Hall regularly holds open days for DDOs and others involved in vocations and discernment in the Church of England. This is an opportunity for you to experience Ridley, but also for us to gather together and think more broadly about the challenges and opportunities of ordination training in this season in the life of the Church of England.

Our inaugural DDO Day at Ridley Hall was held on Friday 13 October 2023. Here is a snapshot of its programme:

Book now. Come and join us for a day to get a taste of study, formation, worship, and life in community at Ridley. Chat with our ordinands, meet with our faculty, pray with us, join us for lunch, experience our teaching, and hear from the College’s senior leadership about the challenges of ordination training fit for the 21st-century Church, Ridley’s vision, and academic and training opportunities.

Talks include:

  • The Future of Training for Ordination in the Church of England;
  • Lay and Ordained Ministries in the Church of England of the Future;
  • Photography and the Art of Theological Reflection.
