The 2021 VCF Weekend will take place 5th-7th March 2021 at Quinta  Oswestry, Shropshire

It is an opportunity for folk who are involved, or interested in VCF to meet together as a family for fun, fellowship, food, and sharing together whilst looking into God’s Word for us and for our profession.

Due to the ongoing Covid Pandemic this is likley to be an online event this year and God willing we will all be together in 2022. Check back for more info.


****  In light of many people requests this is a new location -More Info to follow nearer the event*****


The VCF weekend offers an opportunity to meet and and share with others who share that common bond of an interest or passion for Jesus combined with a heart for the veterinary profession. It offers a place where the two can be understood to work together for God’s glory and purpose.
The weekend offers a unique opportunity for everyone to come together in a relaxed, informal way, to ask questions and to have space and time to consider how we share Christ’s love in the veterinary world in the ministry that he has given to each one of us. It also offers the chance to find “Paul’s” to mentor and support us on our journey, and to find “Timothy’s” that we in turn can help and support on theirs.
