Thinking ahead and welcoming good friends.

June at Westminster College welcomes back for the 9th year our friends from the Round Church | Christian Heritage for their 2017 Summer School.

We are delighted to host their Theology and Apologetics courses with a special theme this year to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

David Illman, Director of Round Church Study Centre, has recently shared an insight into our valued relationship.

Round Church | Christian Heritage, Cambridge has been running summer schools at Westminster College for the past 8 years. We have certainly appreciated the overall environment that matches our distinct organisational ethos: learning in intimate fellowship with instructors who embody what they teach and students who walk away enriched. Westminster has gone beyond the call of duty whenever particular requests are made, with grace promptitude. But what sets apart Westminster is not only the ideal location in Cambridge for our annual events or even making the facilities conducive to our needs, but it’s the relational value and integrity the college staff maintains in order to make the week enjoyable. That’s why we keep returning!’

New plaque commemorates Westminster’s refurbishment

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!
