"The college website summarises its approach:"
In addition to formation for the changing realities of parish ministry, we also provide pathways for theological educators and pioneer ministers. We offer continuing education resources and sabbatical opportunities for clergy and laity, as well as conference and meeting facilities.

Generosity, Justice and TransformationWe are a diverse, inclusive and international community of some seventy students and twenty staff. We share a vision of ministry to all society, local and global, to witness to and participate in God's work of generosity, justice and transformation. We are enriched by our ecumenical and interfaith partners in the Cambridge Theological Federation, by our historic relationship with Cambridge University's Faculty of Divinity, and by our new affiliation with Anglia Ruskin University.

Holiness, Wisdom and SkillOur community's life is framed and fashioned by the eucharist and daily offices, through which we live and work together to serve God's mission of the Kingdom. We see three key dimensions to formation for ministry, which we sum up as growing in holiness, wisdom and skill. Our rigorous integration of spiritual and personal development, theological learning and interpretation, and ministerial practice and reflection provides the foundation for a life of ministry and service in a changing world.”"
