Ripon College Cuddesdon is an Anglican theological college in the village of Cuddesdon, just outside Oxford, UK.

This site is a student-led space for members of the community to reflect creatively on the arts and faith.

The blog will host contributions from a variety of college students, past and present, and staff.

Posts may be original work, or a response to someone else’s piece. They may be a reflection on a creative pastime, or an experience of creation, and how this influences faith, prayer life, or general wellbeing.

This is a space to gather and to share whatever is enjoyable or meaningful, whether that be a favourite author, painting, piece of music, the experience of photography, or a favourite place to walk, for example.

The aim is to explore and illustrate the very positive impact the arts can have upon our lives as we seek to live out the love of Christ together.

It is our hope that this blog may encourage reflection, joy, and perhaps even inspiration to explore a new artistic medium.
