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.
Area Training Days series 3
A valuable opportunity for Church Administrators to gain a new vision for their ministry and network with others in similar positions.
We have completed two series of AREA TRAINING DAYS for all categories of Church Administrator during 2011 to 2013 (10 venues in series 1) and 2014-2016 (14 venues in series 2). We are now into series 3 and have held events in Birmingham, Guildford and Nottingham between May and July 2017. We plan a Belfast day to follow in the autumn plus a range of other locations in 2018 after a pause for the changeover in UCAN leadership.
Theme for series 3
Administration: biblical and creative
10.00 am. to 3.30 pm.
£39 for UCAN members, including materials and lunch. £49 others (who are welcome).
Details of future events will follow.
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. Here is the brochure to give you an idea of what one of our residential conferences looks like:
We are now planning a Cutting Edge day conference in March 2018 on the topic of volunteering.
