The Dewi Rowlands’ Bursary


The Trustees of the Unaffiliated Congregational Churches Charities are pleased to announce that a bursary of up to £5,000.00 is available during each year for assisting a minister or student who is undertaking or intending to undertake academic research into Congregationalism.

About The Dewi Rowlands’ Bursary

The Bursary was first awarded in 2017 in recognition of the late Dewi Rowlands contribution to the Unaffiliated Congregational Churches Charities through his work a Trustee and also in recognition of his contribution to the wider Congregational cause. Dewi was the first Co-optative Trustee to be appointed to the board in 1977 just 6 months after the formation of the UCCC by the Charity Commission in. When he died suddenly in December 2015, Dewi had 38 unbroken years’ service as a Trustee. He was one of the 3 trustees nominated by the Unaffiliated Churches and over the years Dewi’s sound and supportive contribution, his in-depth knowledge of Congregationalism and of course his extensive work with and for the UCCC have all been greatly valued.
