A grand total of 21 local groups of administrators/church managers are now officially listed with UCAN, spanning the country from Bournemouth to Aberdeen, from Northern Ireland to the M11!
Group sizes range from a handful to 40 (on the mailing list!), with each group meeting with timing, location and frequency to suit the constituent members.
Most meetings involve food and drink to a greater or lesser extent, and vitally provide a link with others who share the same joys and frustrations, and find that their burdens are lightened in this knowledge! Groups tend to include a mix of pre-arranged content, and informal opportunity to ask questions and benefit from each others’ wisdom and experience: hot topics seem to be databases and GDPR…but the range of discussions is as broad-ranging as our roles!
The newest group is in South Yorkshire – welcome to Sally Davies and her members. Take a look at ChurchSuite and see if there is already a group near you. If not, why not get in touch with other UCAN members near you (search the membership database) and see if you could start one. Just let us know if we can help you get this started – making contacts, working out formats, providing materials. Any questions, please feel free to contact Isabel Willerton or I’m on the end of an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
