How to join CHRISM

Please complete the Annual Subscription Form and return it by post. The subscription year runs from 1st January to 31st December.

Payment of the annual subscription is a condition of membership of the association.

If you are a UK taxpayer, it substantially increases CHRISM income if you gift aid it. You can download a gift aid form by clicking here.

The membership subscription supports the Journal and makes possible developments consistent with CHRISM's objectives. Should you wish to make an additional donation to further the work of CHRISM, it would be most welcome.

The Annual Subscription is currently as follows:

  • Individuals in employment and organisations : £40
  • Individuals who pay no income tax : £25
  • Students : £25 (for a maximum of three years)

The Membership Incentive Scheme for members

Three things are true:

  • CHRISM needs, and will benefit from, more members
  • Only a comparatively small proportion of people who exercise a secular ministry are CHRISM members
  • The easiest way to get more people into CHRISM is for existing members to recruit them – because you know who they are and how to persuade them!

But MSEs are also very busy people (it goes with the calling), so your Committee thought that a little encouragement would be in order. We are therefore rolling out a Membership Incentive Scheme – anyone who recruits a new member will be rewarded with a £20 reduction on the cost of attending the next CHRISM Annual Conference or Reflective Weekend.

It's easy to get your discount. All you have to do is:

  • Persuade someone to join.
  • Send the claim form (which can be downloaded from here or obtained from the latest edition of the Journal) to the Membership Secretary, giving the details of the person you've persuaded.

When they pay their first subscription, the Membership Secretary will send you a £20 voucher.

  • When you book for the next Annual Conference or Reflective Weekend, enclose your voucher with the booking form.

The (legible) small print:

  1. This applies to full membership only.
  2. The new member must be a first-time joiner, not someone renewing their subscription.
  3. The voucher is valid for either of the next two residential events from the date of issue.
  4. Only one discount voucher can be used when booking any event.
