The Spirit and Culture programme at St Edward's seeks to foster a spiritual
culture for the new millennium. We are committed to Christ and celebrate
the glory of the Christian tradition, but we are open to the Spirit of God
everywhere, not only in the Church but outside it, including other
spiritual practices, and new movements in science, psychology and ecology.
We are aware that the Church has often alienated those it seeks to serve,
and hope that this programme will embrace spiritual seekers of all kinds in
an atmosphere of warmth and openness.
St Edward's stands at the corner of Market Hill next to the Arts Theatre
(see Venue location with map). It is an oasis of calm at the heart of Cambridge,
and seeks to combine respect for tradition with relevance to modern life.
