Conservative Christian Fellowship
|Part of a series on|
The Conservative Christian Fellowship (CCF) is an organisation working with the British Conservative Party. Established in 1990 by Tim Montgomerie and Conservative MP David Burrowes while they were students at Exeter University. The organisation supports Christians of the British Conservative Party and represents the party to the Christian world.
The Mission of the CCF is to:
- bridge the Christian world and Conservatives
- inspire Christians to go into public life and equip them when they get there
- be 'salt and light' in British politics.
The fellowship organises a variety of events and meetings for the Party and for its supporters around the UK. These can be its Listening to Britain's Churches events, monthly 'Prayers for the Nation' in Parliament or meetings of their local groups. It is also an active participant in the cross-party group Christians in Politics.
The Fellowship's headquarters are at Conservative Campaign Headquarters in Westminster, but it is funded solely by its supporters. Supporters of the CCF do not have to be members of the Conservative Party
The Fellowship is governed by a board of trustees and currently has 6 staff members, as well as interns and volunteers.
The CCF's previous Executive Directors include Tim Montgomerie, Paul Woolley and Elizabeth Berridge. Tim Montgomerie is now Comment Editor of The Times. Paul Woolley is director of Theos. Elizabeth Berridge was made Baroness Berridge in January 2011.
