Ridley Hall, Cambridge

Ridley Hall is a theological college in Cambridge in the United Kingdom which trains intending ministers for the Church of England and other churches.

Although not part of the University of Cambridge Ridley Hall maintains close ties with the university and many of its students are awarded qualifications by the university Faculty of Divinity, as well as Anglia Ruskin University. Ridley Hall teaching tends towards an evangelical theology. It is one of three Church of England theological colleges (the others being Trinity College, Bristol and Cranmer Hall in Durham) which self-identify as "Open Evangelical".
