Partners and families are valued members of the community. Partners are entitled to become full members of the Common Room, come to meals, and attend lectures, worship and social events. They can also attend Common Room meetings to discuss any issues relating to College and to put their views.
Each year a Partners' Representative is elected. Their role is to make sure partners know what is going on around College, to offer support, and represent views at various meetings. They also arrange weekly social events, such as trips to the pub, bowling, picnics, bring and share meals, as well as occasional family events at weekends. There is also a weekly child-friendly drop-in coffee and cake session, and there are also informal Bible study groups, with a programme arranged on a termly basis.
Some partners find it helpful and rewarding to join the Cuddesdon School of Theology and Ministry which offers an introductory series of lectures that explore theology, biblical studies, ministry and spirituality. There is a termly course fee but partners are entitled to a substantial discount.
