The Church Administration Accreditation Scheme (CAAS), has been developed to help people who want to serve or are already serving on a church committee. For several years there has been a desire by Churches to see a higher standard of Chairmanship on our platforms, also for our members and Committee members to have a better understanding of how churches are run. The Church Administration Accreditation Scheme is specifically aimed at those who aspire to be Committee members or chairperson within their churches.


The criterion for the accreditation consists of the following:-

  1. 15 Chairman’s duties must be signed off in your logbook.
  2. The trainee must be a full member of an SNU Church or an Individual Member, before they can be accepted onto the scheme.
  3. You must complete the eight units contained within the logbook.
  4. All trainees will need to complete the G1 education course.
  5. You will need to have the log-book signed by an approved person from the Church after each service: This will either be the President or a Church Committee member.
  6. You will be required to pass a Final Assessment this will be carried out by the Exponents Committee.

A candidate must complete the training programme within three years.

Before applying for the final assessment, a candidate must have completed the G1 Education course and the appropriate training. The Final Assessment is arranged by the Education & Exponents Committee. A candidate must complete a private interview and an oral test of 10 questions based on course G1 and basic knowledge of the running of an SNU-affiliated Church or a Pioneer Centre. A candidate must also chair a Church Service, give a prayer at that service and both choose and deliver a reading appropriate for a Church service.

Registration Fee: 20.00

Final Assessment Fee: £36.00
