Welcome to Westcott
In times of change for the Church of England, Westcott House seeks to prepare women and men for public ministry in a wide range of missional contexts. We welcome people from a variety of backgrounds and we are actively developing the range of pathways available to equip them for engaging with their local communities for the proclamation of the Gospel.
As the Church now looks at how it may set free the ministry of the whole people of God, Westcott’s vision is to form ministers who are mission-focused, collaborative, adaptable and deeply prayerful. Above all we seek to enable ordinands to respond flexibly and sensitively to the Church’s priorities now and in the future.
Life at Westcott House is enriched by our ecumenical and interfaith partnerships, and rooted in the academic excellence and remarkable diversity of the Cambridge Theological Federation and the Universities of Cambridge and Durham. Westcott House provides a range of flexible training pathways for ordinands, bespoke pathways for independent students, and offers opportunities for sabbaticals.
