Next month General @synod will debate an emergency motion tabled by Bishop @nickbaines, condemning Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine and urging churches to support refugees and the people of Ukraine.

As food diminishes, the thunder of weapons grows. So, let us not stop praying, fasting, helping, working so that paths of #peace might be given more space in the jungle of conflict.

Holy Father’s Prayer Intentions throughout the year:

June: Families
We pray for Christian families around the world; may they embody and experience unconditional love and advance in holiness in their daily lives.

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.
