Welcome!Administrators − UCAN events

UCAN events

UCAN organises events itself and is also 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.

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.

2017 Cutting Edge national residential conference recordings

To date we have run eight Cutting Edge conferences aimed at senior-manager Administrators, alternating day and residential year by year.

Our 2017 residential conference took place from Monday 20th To Wednesday 22nd March 2017 at King's Park, Northampton. The theme was Open heart ministry. Our speakers were:

  • Dr Trevor Stammers, Programme Director in Bioethics and Medical Law at St Mary's University, former GP and formerly Chair of the Christian Medical Fellowship.
  • The Revd Jez Barnes and Dr Jules Morgan, Vicar and Director of Operations and Development respectively at St Stephen's Church, Twickenham.
  • Pastor John Tindall, formerly Senior Pastor of Chessington Evangelical Church. He and his wife Pauline will be the Chaplains for the conference.

The recordings for the conference have now been prepared.  Main session recordings on the UCAN recordings page which is in the public domain, extra material and workshop recordings on the UCAN resources page restricted to members-only.

Quote:

Massive value just in networking time ... Great to meet and hear from others in churches around the country. I feel encouraged, inspired and challenged! ... Loved the atmosphere, venue, people, freedom to be myself, the understanding of those around us.  Bible input was brilliant ... I have been really impressed by UCAN and the whole event, the organisation, the networking opportunities, the encouragement and support ... What a fantastic conference. Loved every minute.

Input well structured, informative and inspiring … Very thought-provoking … Now see (our work) fully as ministry … Had my eyes opened as to what the role involves … Great group work considering the Bible passages … Really good to share conflicts, issues and delights we all experience.
