About ICF
ICF is a membership organisation that works to encourage individuals to deepen their understanding of God's purpose in the world of work and to provide support by:
  • combining the practical experience and theological reflections of our members and extensive network of friends and associates
  • helping our members and others to live out their faith at their work
  • acting as a prophetic and challenging resource point for the churches in their ministry to all those at work.
ICF is a national ecumenical organisation, which was founded in 1877 and developed by the famous World War 1 chaplain, Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy - Woodbine Willie - who campaigned in his time for God to be heard at work, as ICF still does today.

What ICF does
  • We publish, in partnership with Faith in Business, the leading quarterly journal in the field (visit website here)
  • We publish services and worship material for use at Rogationtide, on Industrial Sunday and for private prayer.
  • We provide details in our newsletter of events arranged by other organisations in the field of Faith and Work.
  • We carry out research into how people at work see the importance of the Christian faith.
  • We maintain high level contacts in the churches and in commerce and industry.
  • We are (and always have been) ecumenical and inclusive.
