UCAN organises a few events itself but is keen to support its members and others who wish to run local, regional or national days for Church Administrators. This page gives access to both forthcoming UCAN events and previous ones too.
To date we have run four CUTTING EDGE conferences for 'senior-manager' Church Administrators (day events in 2010 and 2012 and residentials at High Leigh in 2011 and King's Park in 2013) with details available by clicking Past events at the foot of this page.
We have also completed the first series of ten AREA TRAINING DAYS for all categories of Church Administrator at St Albans, Belfast, Birmingham, Guildford, Leeds, Sevenoaks, Manchester, Bath, Central London and Southampton in the period September 2011 to May 2013. Again, click Past events at the foot of this page to access details. A second series will begin in early 2014 when we hope to add areas not covered this first time such as in Scotland.
Specialist IT training for Church Administrators
We ran the first of these events on 24th September 2013 at Guildford. The day provided training in MS Word, MS PowerPoint, MS Outlook, and Adobe Indesign. It cost £55. We are hoping to arrange a second event in either Leeds or Manchester some time in 2014.

Area Training Days series 2
We are planning a second series of Area Training Days around the UK starting Spring 2014. Details of the theme and the first venues will be announced in January.
Cutting Edge 2014 and 2015
The next Cutting Edge day conference takes place at City Temple in central London on Tuesday 1st July 2014. The theme is change management and we are delighted that the day will be led by Bryn Hughes. Details available from January 2014.
The next residential conference will be held at King's Park, Northampton from 16th to 18th March 2015. The themes are 'knowledge on the net' and 'changing our churches'.
