Wesley House is a community of Methodist scholars and students at the heart of the University city of Cambridge. Since 1921 it has been a gateway for students in the Wesleyan tradition into the excellent resources for learning in the University of Cambridge, and since 1972, to the shared resources of the globally significant Cambridge Theological Federation (a unique collaboration between Anglican, Reformed, Catholic, Lutheran, Orthodox and Methodist communities of prayer and study). We work with those in good standing in their own churches and with independent students. We maintain an open, inclusive ethos in which we encourage mutual respect and open dialogue. We uphold academic freedoms.
