About NCFI

From a short video preview, to the Vision, Mission and Strategic Plans of NCFI, you will find in this section all you need to know about this dynamic organisation, and how it connects Christian nurses around the world.

Our History

Nurses Christian Fellowship International, was founded in 1958 as an independent, non-denominational, non-governmental, non-partisan corporation comprised of national Nurses Christian Fellowships (NNCFs).  From its beginnings, when Scottish nurse, Johan Allen began to search out countries where there were Nurses Christian Fellowship (NCF) groups, and bring them together for mutual benefit, NCFI has been connecting nurses worldwide.

 The remarkable story of the foundation, expansion and development of this unique organisation can be found in a book by Pat Ashworth, a past President of NCFI. (Ashworth, P. (2012) A History of Nurses Christian Fellowship International. The first 50 years. Belfast, Blackstaff Press).

The June 2020 issue of the Christian Nurses International Journal, highlights the vision and inspirational leadership that moved forward the ministry of NCFI, internationally and regionally, from its beginnings to the present day.
