Teaching group

A teaching group has been set up by Kerry Williams who is teaching at the Nottingham Vet School. As each member of the group will understand the joys and challenges that they each face in teaching, they regularly share Praise and Prayer points by email. Occasionally they meet via Zoom and in the summer of 2022 some of them were able to meet up in person at the Nottingham Vet School.

For more information please get in touch with Kerry Williams who organises this group.

For many, this will occur informally through getting to know vets at the VCF Weekends, through Regional Groups or through doing EMS. If you would like us to put you in touch with someone within VCF to be a mentor as you begin in practice (or have been in practice for some years) then just drop us an email.

Regional Groups

These are a network of groups which have grown up throughout the UK. They vary greatly in format from monthly bible studies, to meeting up once or twice a year for a walk and a meal. Their aim is to provide networking and fellowship for vets, vet nurses, vet students, etc. in a local area – from those who are very new to an area, to those who have been there for many years.

VCF Weekends

VCF holds weekends together annually. One year there will be a central VCF Weekend at the Quinta Christian Conference Centre and on the alternate years, there is a Northern VCF  Weekend and a Southern VCF Weekend. These are a place to worship together, to study God’s Word, and to meet with other Christians in the veterinary and allied professions. The seminars at the conference allow the opportunity to consider various subjects in more depth. They can be used towards your CPD allowance.

VCF Weekends


VCF has run a number of CPD days, which are open to all, and which link a veterinary subject with a biblical teaching or testimony.

VCF produces a bi-monthly newsletter which is a great opportunity to read testimonies of all that God is doing throughout the veterinary profession, to hear about folk working overseas and to share some of the challenges and struggles that others face in their daily life as they try to share Christ’s love in their workplace and beyond.

Job opportunities

VCF members are able to advertise job vacancies, or jobs required on the VCF Website and in the VCF Newsletter.

Prayer pulls the rope below and the great bell rings above in the ears of God. Some scarcely stir the bell, for they pray so languidly. Others give but an occasional pluck at the rope. But he who wins with heaven is the man who grasps the rope boldly and pulls continuously, with all his might. Charles Spurgeon
Some people think God does not like to be troubled with our constant coming and asking. The way to trouble God is not to come at all. Dwight L. Moody
I have so much to do that I spend several hours in prayer before I am able to do it. John Wesley
