"We long to turn outwards, to engage God’s world with the wonderful & startling transformation that is at the heart of the salvation offered in Christ." An update from The Archbishop of Canterbury on the Lambeth Conference - "God’s Church for God’s World."

The Word of God summons us to discernment and guides the #Synod, so it may be filled with grace, a healing process guided by the Spirit, in which Jesus calls us to ask what God wants to say to us in this time, and the direction in which he wants to lead us. #ListeningChurch

Over the years the Association has provided its members with information to this end and has provided working groups to represent the financial and temporal interests of Religious with Central Government, The Charity Commission and other legislative bodies.

The Annual Conference and various study days provide valued opportunities for members to keep their knowledge base up-to-date and to spend time together in a relaxed environment. In between these formal gatherings, a good deal of networking goes on between members across the country and indeed even further afield. We hope that this website will be an additional tool for our registered members to use in the furtherance of their responsibilities and to share with others the benefits of experience.

The role of Religious Bursar is one of constant change and challenges and membership of the Association of Provincial Bursars provides support for new and old members alike. It also gives the assurance that no one need work in isolation. There is a wealth of experience within the membership and our website will direct you to other sources of professional help.

We hope you will enjoy our website and find it helpful.
