Society Visit – Westminster College, Cambridge

Westminster College, Cambridge

Visit to Westminster College, St Clement’s and All Saints churches, Cambridge

Westminster College is a theological college of the United Reformed Church, incorporating the Cheshunt Foundation of the Countess of Huntingdon’s Connexion. 

We will begin our visit with a display from the College’s archive collections including those of prominent nonconformists of the 18th century onward.  Then, after coffee/tea we will be given a tour of the college by the archivist, including the Chapel (an Arts & Crafts gem) and Library with portrait collection.  We shall end our visit to the college with lunch in the Hall.  Afterwards we shall walk half-mile to All Saints church, Jesus Lane, via St Clement’s church, both of which are being opened specially for us.  St Clement’s is a medieval church off the beaten tourist track that deserves to be better known; All Saints is a Victorian Gothic masterpiece by Bodley and Morris.
