Welcome to Westminster!
We hope that this website will give you the information you need and tell you some things you might not have expected to discover.
Westminster is a Resource Centre for Learning for the United Reformed Church. We work, with others in the URC, to resource, enable and encourage all God's people in the exciting and lifelong project of being a disciple of Jesus - 'a learner in the Kingdom of God'.
We are based in a building, but we do our work in many places and in many ways. We can come to your church or a conference centre of your choosing to run days for church or group - and you can set the agenda. You can bring groups here - for one-off days or for longer stays - and again, you can ask us to put something on and we'll do our best to help.
You might like to consider coming to stay at Westminster, on your own or with a group. Let us know how long you'd like to be here and what you'd like to do and we'll make you welcome. We have a beautiful building in spacious grounds, a chapel which echoes the prayers of many generations and which will embrace your own, a prayer labyrinth, one of the best libraries in Cambridge, a dining room with excellent food, accommodation and meeting space. We're located in the centre of Cambridge, round the corner from 'the backs' and within five minutes walks of Kings College. Cambridge was a key centre for reforming movements in England at the time of the Reformation, and remains an important place for the development of the Christian faith today. You will find Christian thinkers and ground breakers in all the major traditions here, right on your doorstep. Why not come and be part of it?
You can also be part of Westminster over a longer period. We can offer you a gateway to study at either of the two universities based in Cambridge. You can study full time and based here or you can study at a distance, from where you live now, and either full or part time. You can study for the joy of it, to gain a degree; at bachelors, masters or doctoral level, or as part of preparation for ministry within the church. Why not have a conversation with us about what is possible and might suit you - at whatever your stage of life?
Westminster is here, 'serving the United Reformed Church'. We are here for you and ready to resource your learning and growing in the faith.
