The Nikæan Club and Ecumenical Trust

For over nine decades the Nikæan Club has been developing relations between the Church of England and non-Anglican churches overseas.

The club, which has over 350 members, has three main goals:

  • To further relations with non-Anglican churches
  • To assist students from other churches in their training and development
  • To offer hospitality on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s behalf to representatives of other churches

The Archbishop of Canterbury has been president since the club began.

Membership is open to Anglicans in communion with the See of Canterbury and interested in the ecumenical movement. They can live in the UK or overseas. To request an application form, please fill in the form below.

The Nikaean Ecumenical Trust

The Nikæan Ecumenical Trust awards study grants to clergy and laity from overseas churches. The aim is to help develop their theological, pastoral or vocational training in a Church of England context.

Grants are also made to part-fund longer courses of theological study. Candidates are not expected to become permanent residents in the UK.

Typically, grants range between £500- £2000. They are made mainly, but not exclusively, to members of the Orthodox Churches
