Christian Heritage began with our founder, Ranald Macaulay.
Ranald and his wife Susan were strongly connected to the L’Abri movement, which was founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer. They spent many years working at the English L’Abri in Hampshire. In 1996 they decided to continue their ministry elsewhere, and moved to Cambridge.
Back in 1994, the congregation of the ancient Round Church in Cambridge had grown too large for the building and moved to the nearby St Andrew the Great church
. For a short time the Church became a Brass Rubbing Centre, and when Ranald arrived in Cambridge he began to run guided city walks that departed from outside its doors.
In 1998, the Round Church became vacant again. This time, Ranald founded a charitable organisation that could take care of the building. And so, in 2001, Christian Heritage was born.
The next few years will be an exciting time of development and change for us. Please sign up for our newsletter
so that we can keep you up to date.
