The CCF, for over fifty years, has held talks, courses and events to serve the ongoing formation of the lay people in the Archdiocese of Southwark.  The Office for the Ongoing Formation of Priests works closely with the CCF to both nourish the faith life of our priests and help them in their task to guide the people in their pastoral care.

A vitally important part of this work is raising awareness of disability.  God does not discriminate, indeed all are of equal value in the eyes of God and all deserve the very best that we can offer.

About the Centre for Catholic Formation

Once the family residence of the Macmillan publishing family and host to authors such as Henry James and Thomas Hardy, 21 Tooting Bec Road is now home to the Centre for Catholic Formation. The CCF, as it is known, is an agency of the Archdiocese of Southwark and serves the parishes and people of the diocese in the work of sharing and learning the Faith. This is achieved, mainly, through study days, talks, parish based training and courses. The director and advisers are on hand for the parishes of the three episcopal areas of the diocese and other members of staff are always ready to lend their wisdom and talents to supporting the Church's mission. 

On the occasion of the Centre's 40th anniversary a fascinating history was produced. An updated summary of the Centre's history will shortly be made available following our 50th anniversary.
