In April last year, several Langham Scholars who are currently studying in the UK gathered at Tyndale House, Cambridge, to see the permanent study room that is to be exclusively used by Langham Scholars. The study room is an ensuite bedroom with easy access to a world-class library and study facilities. During the visit, International Ministries Director Chris Wright led a prayer of thanksgiving for this provision. Former Associate Director of Langham Scholars Ian Shaw also took part in the visit. It costs over £5,000 a year to cover the costs of the room.
