This year’s Easter School will take place from 26th to 28th March 2018 (the first part of Holy Week).

Easter School offers a unique opportunity for those who preach or lead worship to join leading academics in Cambridge and spend time reflecting, learning and developing their gifts. The course is held in a devotional atmosphere giving participants the opportunity to deepen their own spiritual journey and experience the rhythm of community prayer here at Wesley House.




The course includes:

  • In-depth teaching
  • Seminar time with keynote speakers
  • Practically-focussed workshops, including The Revd Dr Mike Long, from Notting Hill Methodist Church on “Praying at the foot of Grenfell Tower”
  • Daily prayers
  • Free time to explore Cambridge

Is the Easter School For Me?

On the course we aim to offer high quality scholarship and teaching to those in lay ministry. Ordained ministers, from all denominations, are also welcome and those on sabbaticals regularly join us.

Participants come from a range of denominations and a variety of ministry situations.

All are welcome, but some previous study of the bible for the purposes of preaching or leading worship is assumed. However, if you don’t lead worship or preach, but feel you would benefit from the course, please do get in touch with us directly.
