Our vision at CiC is to see a culturally relevant church within everyone’s reach, worldwide.

CiC serves a wide range of independent churches, from new church plants to large established ethnic minority churches.

Benefits of Membership


The lead minister and any assistant ministers will receive ministerial accreditation from CiC and an identification card. Accredited ministers will have the opportunity to sit with a member of the CiC Council annually, to discuss progress and set clear goals for the coming year.



Member churches can minister confidently in the public square in the knowledge that their interests are being represented by CiC to government, media, academia, inter-faith and inter-church forums.



CiC celebrates diversity and independence - reflected in our member-led structure.  We are here to facilitate opportunities for ministers to fellowship together and offer mutual support and encouragement.

What our church members say

CiC Residential_087.jpg

CiC is unlike any other network I have explored!

The expectations of membership are clear and really well thought through, serving to facilitate rather than regulate my ministry.

CiC places a strong emphasis on relationships and mutual encouragement, providing precious opportunities such as the Ministers’ Fellowship to meet and connect with like-minded people from a wide variety of ministries.

The peer reviews and accountability structures are excellent – helping me to set clear ministry targets and clarify my vision for the year ahead.
