Covid 19 Notes:

Ridley Hall is accepting applications for September 2021. For students undertaking our online courses there is little impact from restrictions imposed due to Covid-19. For students enrolled on courses delivered through on-site block week teaching in Cambridge, our objective is to restore full face-to-face teaching, worship and social programmes as soon as possible from June 2021. If we are able to do this sooner than currently anticipated, we will.

Many backgrounds, all ages, different ministries, one vision: growing in wisdom to proclaim Jesus Christ. Ridley Hall trains youth ministers, children’s and family ministers, lay pioneer ministers, ordinands and more to proclaim the Gospel and build God’s kingdom throughout the UK and beyond. If you have a calling to full-time ministry, whether with youth, children and families, those on the edges, or those in the church, we’d love to hear from you. Maybe the next step in your faith journey is closer than you think!
