Welcome to Westcott House in the heart of Cambridge

Westcott House serves the Church of England and the wider Anglican Communion by preparing men and women for public ministry. We draw people from a wide variety of backgrounds and offer a range of flexible training pathways to equip them for the changing realities of parish ministry. We also offer continuing educational resources and sabbatical opportunities for clergy and laity through the Westcott Foundation. 


We are a diverse, inclusive and international community, sharing a vision of ministry to all society and responding to a call to share in God's work of generosity, justice and transformation in the world. Our common life is enriched by our ecumenical and interfaith partners in the Cambridge Theological Federation and by our historic relationship with Cambridge University's Faculty of Divinity.
