Subscriptions, renewals and donations
To become a member or an associate of Church Society please download the application form below and return to the office either by post or you can email a scan of the form to us (if you complete the standing order to pay your subscription then we will need the hard copy sent in the post).
The annual subscription rate is £42, or £24 if you are retired or unemployed. Anglican ordinands studying in the UK receive membership and Churchman subscription for just £30. Spouses can subscribe for an additional £10.
Members and associates receive our mailings and our quarterly magazine Crossway, and are also eligible for reduced rates on our Churchman journal. Download the membership form here. Download the the printable form here.
You can choose whether to become a member or an associate. Members are those who are members of the Church of England or a Church in communion with the Church of England, have been confirmed in the Church of England, and agree to uphold the Doctrine set out in the Thirty-nine Articles. Members have the right to vote at the AGM. Associates are those who are sympathetic with the aims of the Society but do not fulfil the other criteria (for example, if you are not currently attending a CofE church). Associates receive all the benefits of membership but are not eligible to vote at the AGM or stand for election to our Council.
In accordance with UK company law, members have a limited liability of £1, the right to attend and vote at our General Meetings, and are eligible to stand for election to our Council. Members have access to a digital copy of our audited accounts.

If you decide to pay by standing order, please could you post the membership form to us, as we need the original copy of the standing order to send to the bank. Alternatively, if you set up the s/o directly with your bank then a scan of the membership form is acceptable. You can also pay via cheque or
pay online here. Or else download our standing order and Gift Aid form. If you are a UK tax payer we are able to reclaim tax on donations and subscriptions to the Society (but not to Churchman).
