Affiliate membership of Modern Church.
Modern Church has been a membership organisation since it began in 1898. After 120 years we are offering a new way of being a part of the wider Modern Church network and supporting the work of bringing progressive thought to more people.
From this summer churches and individuals can become Affiliates of Modern Church. Affiliates will receive a printed copy our revamped quarterly publication ‘Signs of the Times’ (churches affiliating will receive 5 copies to use as they like). Affiliates will also have access to all our online resources, our e-newsletter, access to local/regional meetings and conferences, and are eligible for a discounted rate for our annual. Churches affiliating can also use the Modern Church logo on their online and printed material.
Modern Church has been a champion of progressive thinking about theology and church for 120 years. As an organisation we do not have a ‘statement of belief’, but work on the basis of an ‘ethos’:
If this open ethos and approach describes the ways in which you or your church would like to see theological debate and learning take place in your church, then affiliating with Modern Church can provide you with resources and a network of people and churches working for change.
We ask individuals who would like to affiliate with Modern Church to make a minimum donation of £20 per year (by GiftAid if possible); we ask churches or other institutions to make a minimum donation of £75 per year. Soon, you will be able to sign up online but in the meantime, if you woud like to become an affiliate please email the Administrator firstname.lastname@example.org.
