Preparing for a vacancy

Preparing for a vacancy bookletWe have created a new resource for those situations where a Minister or Pastor of a Congregational Church is preparing to retire or move on. It is a simple guide with easy to follow suggestions on how a church should proceed.

Suggestions include special Church Meetings, creating a church profile/job description/person specification, having a vision day, establishing an interview process and much more. Take a look ...


Opportunities to Serve and Grow

Belonging to the Congregational Federation can open the door to varied and exciting opportunities: both for young people; and for others who lead children's and youth work in our churches.

We encourage young people to grow in faith through service programmes at home and overseas. 

We also support the personal development of Sunday School teachers, youth leaders and other voluntary workers in our Churches.

In addition, we encourage whole churches to take up opportunities to strengthen their work.
