Founded in 1893...
Ridley, from its name to its building, has a rich history.
Ridley was named after Nicholas Ridley, a man who was burned at the stake along with Bishop Hugh Latimer in 1555 because he stood firm for his faith.
In 1940 the building was severely damaged due to the Blitz in WW2. It was rebuilt in 1951.
Ridley was gifted by its founder, Mr Haslett, to London City Mission in 1936. A number of missionaries have faithfully engaged in outreach since.
However, Sunday services were always in demand. This led to a unique blend of missionary hall and church.
I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.' - Isaiah 46:10
