UCAN events

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. See below for the next event on 1st July 2014.

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. Click Past events at the foot of this page to access details. Preliminary news for series 2 is shown below.

UCAN members can access a range of materials from all these events on the UCAN resources page. The main Cutting Edge recordings are available in the public domain on the UCAN recordings page.
