“There’s always winners out of these crises”

Bishop of Durham @BishopPaulB calls on energy companies to help with the cost of living and tells #Newsnight about the Church of England’s plans to create warm spaces during the winter and to increase luncheon clubs

How precious is that profoundly genuine sense of family and community among #IndigenousPeoples! And how important it is to cultivate properly the bond between young and old, and to maintain a healthy and harmonious relationship with all of creation!

Holy Father’s Prayer Intentions throughout the year:

AUGUST   Small Businesses
We pray for small and medium-sized businesses; in the midst of economic and social crisis, may they find ways to continue operating, and serving their communities

PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW: 2022 APB CONFERENCE, AGM and 40th Anniversary Celebration; Monday 3 to Wednesday 5 October 2022 in High Leigh Conference Centre. 

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.
