What is it? The Cambridge Theological Federation is an ecumenical partnership of twelve institutions, with over 300 students from 30 different countries, founded in 1972.

The Federation has been an ecumenical witness for over forty years with thousands of students benefiting from learning, worshipping and socialising together. Over 2000 students have gained from this unique ecumenical collaboration in the last decade alone.

The Federation offers daily opportunities for ecumenical encounter in scholarship and sociability.
