  • Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF) is a UK-based charity that was founded in 1928 as the . UCCF's dual aims are: 1. * To advance the evangelical Christian faith amongst students, graduates and former members of universities; and 2. * To promote biblical scholarship and research. To achieve its aims, UCCF undertakes three main areas of activity: 1. * Encouraging and supporting leaders of affiliated Christian Unions (CUs) throughout the UK to engage in evangelism and help Christian students grow in their faith. 2. * Publishing and distributing a wide range of Christian resources through its Inter-Varsity Press (IVP) subsidiary, based in Nottingham (not to be confused with the US-based InterVarsity Press). 3. * Supporting biblical research, mostly at postgraduate level. There are around 200 Christian Unions in the UK at present, with a total membership of approximately 20,000. The Christian Unions provide opportunities for fellowship, bible study and evangelism, with nearly 40,000 students attending outreach events each year. UCCF employs about 80 staff, and has a further 80 or so volunteer "Relay Workers" on a one-year training programme. Many of these staff and volunteers are graduates who were involved in the CU as undergraduates. They support the student Christian Unions with training, advice and materials. (en)
