Westminster College in Cambridge is a place of learning and scholarship where ancient Christian traditions and wisdom meet contemporary questions to inspire faithfulness today and tomorrow. Westminster College is a home for initial ministerial training for the United Reformed Church and is open to others, from the United Reformed Church or other denominations, who wish to learn and discover, or are simply seeking refreshment, retreat and space to reflect and grow.

The College welcomes visitors from across the world for study, reflection, or simply the opportunity to enjoy Cambridge.

On the Westminster campus, and sharing the opportunities for encounter, are other members of the Federation including the Woolf Institute of Abrahamic Faiths, the Faraday Institute of Science & Religion, the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide and the Eastern Region Ministry Course.
