Since 2009, UCAN has led the effort to support church administrators across the UK and to promote the Spiritual Gift of administration within the church. 


Our Mission

Our desire is to equip those responsible for administration in churches to be efficient in their roles, to connect them to one another for mutual support and resource-sharing and to forge effective working relationships between them and their church leadership team so that they may collectively best-utilise their God-given gifts, skills and passion to extend the Kingdom.

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.

Just wanted to say thank you for the training session - it was really useful and great to have people who not only knew their subject in the “real world” but also know the intricacies of trying to implement that in a church context. There were loads of things I could take away. I was nervous about spending church budget (as we always are!) on such a course but it was more than worth it”

This was my first UCAN residential conference and I can only praise the event. The venue, food and company were all great and the topics and worship at the conference provided me with great food for thought. The opportunity to network and share experiences with like-minded people was invaluable, and I was able to poach some ideas to take back to the office.
