The Conservative Christian Fellowship is an organisation allied with the British Conservative Party, established in 1990 by Tim Montgomerie and Conservative MP David Burrowes whilst they were students at Exeter University. The organisation wishes to unite the Christians of the British Conservative Party and to recruit more Christians into the Party.
The Mission of the CCF is:
- to build a strong, relational bridge between the Party and the Christian Community
- to seek out Christians who support the Conservatives, and encourage and equip them to play their part
- to provide unrivalled help and support to each member in their own quest to make a difference
- to embed prayer as the foundation of all our activity and fellowship.
The fellowship organises a variety of events and meetings for the Party and for its members, mostly in Westminster, but increasingly elsewhere in the country, to reflect and support its growing membership outside Greater London and the home counties. It is also an active participant in the cross-party group Christians in Politics, which is an umbrella organisation for the Conservative Christian Fellowship, Christian Socialist Movement and Liberal Democrat Christian Forum.

“And sometimes I remember days of old
When fellowship seemed not so far to seek,
And all the world and I seemed much less cold,
And at the rainbows foot lay surely gold,
And hope felt strong, and life itself not weak.”
—Christina Georgina Rossetti (18301894)
