We still have some places available on our quiet day for the 4th March.
Quiet days are suitable for everyone, whether new or experienced at retreats. With a different theme and lead by different people each time, we hope there is something on offer for you. On the 4th March we explore ‘Who are You?’…A day away in Lent.
Suitable for new and experienced retreatants, this day will focus on our identity as Christians, drawing on the wilderness experience of Christ and the writings of the desert fathers and mothers. There will be times of guided reflection as well as private time and silence. The day will begin with worship and includes a two course lunch and this retreat isn’t a silent one. This retreat is being led by Mark Argent and Sam White.
To book, please complete the Booking Form and return to Claudia on firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post to Tutorial Office, Westminster College, Cambridge, CB3 0AA. If you’ve any queries don’t hesitate to call our Tutorial Office on 01223 33 06 32 for more information.

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve got a new brass plaque at Westminster! It commemorates our refurbishment and renovation project, which was completed in 2014, and thanks all the individuals, congregations, Synods, the General Assembly of the United Reformed Church, and other donors who made the refurbishment possible. It’s in the Entrance Hall, in pride of place next to the plaque marking the opening of Westminster College in Cambridge in 1899.
On the table below the plaque lies a bible and a book of our student photographs dating back to the 1880s. Above them all is a stained glass window showing the burning bush, the symbol of the Presbyterian Church of England; and the coats of arms of Mrs Gibson and Mrs Lewis, the twin sisters who were our most generous benefactors when the college was built. There’s even a tiny hare – namesake of the architect, Henry Hare.
Come and admire our new addition to the College, and see how some of the key strands in the history of Westminster are brought together here!
We are excited to announce that our Principal, Neil Thorogood, will be launching his DVD ‘Charcoal Gospel’ on Wednesday 22nd February at Westminster College. All Cambridge Theological Federation members are welcome to join us from 5pm-6pm. Refreshments will be available throughout.
Neil will be giving a short introduction to his work, there will be the chance to view the original art work, and you will be able to purchase the DVD for £9.99.
If you are unable to make it to the launch, the DVD is also available to purchase from the URC Shop and from Reception at Westminster.
Please do take a look and see how the Principal has mastered ‘Twitter’. This month we also welcome ERMC to our Campus, who will be residing in the Art Studio until their new offices are ready for occupation.
We’re delighted to say that our Art Studio was completed last week and is already being put to good use with the arrival of our Cambridge Theological Federation Colleagues, the Eastern Region Ministerial Course. They will be working from the Art Studio until they move to their new accommodation in our Bounds development later in the year.
Their Principal, Alexander Jensen, was happy to pause from the unpacking and settling in to take a couple of photos for us, and said they were delighted with their accommodation, excited to be part of the campus and are looking forward to a close working relationship.
Their arrival marks another important part in the life of Westminster as our Campus increases in size and diversity and we’re excited to have them with us.
Happy New Year to you all from Westminster College.
