Westminster is a theological college, training men and women for ministry and serving as a resource centre for learning for the United Reformed Church. Westminster College did not begin its life in Cambridge, but in London in 1844. Then the college of the Presbyterian Church in England, it began lectures in Exeter Hall before finally moving in 1859 to the more settled site of Queen's Square, London. The College did not move to Cambridge until 1899 (and this only after some hesitation on the part of the church) where a strategic site had been given to the church by Agnes Smith Lewis and Margaret Dunlop Gibson. These two women, biblical scholars, linguists and explorers of great distinction, were founding benefactors of Westminster College. We wish to stress that the paintings at Westminster College are not in public ownership. In accordance with the charitable aims of the College, which is a private institution, we are including our paintings on this website for the principal benefit of wider academic awareness. Westminster College is not open to the public.
