Welcome!Administrators − UCAN local groups

UCAN local groups

We have a scheme to establish UCAN local groups. If you already have a group of Church Administrators in your area, ask for details of how to register this as an official UCAN group so that it then appears on these pages. If you would like to start such a group, we can help put you in touch with others and support you as you launch. One of our group leaders is happy to tell you how her group works and advise you how to go about setting up a group. Ask John for contact details.

The latest groups to join are the Oxfordshire Group and the Bucks/Herts Border Group (both in July 2017) and the South Yorkshire Group (in September 2017).

UCAN – promoting excellence in church administration


The information UCAN brings to us is invaluable and the development of local groups makes us realise that we’re not alone. There are others also facing the same issues on a daily basis. It gives us an opportunity to share and offer help where we can to those in nearby churches.
