Research at the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide
The Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide welcomes researchers from around the world to use its rich library and archival resources and attend its seminars. The Centre is part of the Cambridge Theological Federation and is linked with Cambridge University’s Divinity Faculty, as well as other study centres in the University. The CCCW is housed in Westminster College, an active Christian community which holds daily prayers during term time. We are situated a short walk from many of the university’s other libraries.
The library is open Monday to Thursday, 9am to 4.30pm (closed from 1 to 1.30), and Friday from 9am to 1pm. Those intending to consult the archive collections should contact the archivist, Philip Saunders, well in advance of arrival.
The CCCW also welcomes scholars for longer periods of time who are looking for a research base in Cambridge. By arrangement, the Centre can offer such scholars a reserved study carrel, out-of-hours access to the library, and facilitate introductions to other research resources in Cambridge. In the past, the Centre has welcomed research students and sabbaticals from around the world.
Charges for offering such premises are as follows:
One month: £150
Six Months: £750
Annual Charge: £1350
Before finalizing any arrangements, we ask for a description of the intended research, a CV, and a referee we may contact.
Westminster College offers bed and breakfast accommodation, which needs to be booked well in advance. Enquiries can be made directly to Westminster or any of the many other places that offer accommodation in Cambridge.
Those with questions and enquiries about research are encouraged to contact CCCW’s director, Jesse Zink.
