Membership grades

BACIP includes four grades of membership:

  • Ordinary members are defined as Christians who are eligible for Graduate Membership of the British Psychological Society (i.e., have completed an undergraduate psychology degree, recognised by the BPS as the basis for further professional study);
  • Spousal members are defined as Christians who are married to an ordinary member of BACIP and who otherwise meet the requirements for ordinary membership;
  • Student members are defined as Christians who are studying psychology at college or university at either undergraduate or postgraduate level and are not in receipt of a salary;
  • Associate members are Christians who are members of allied professions or related academic disciplines, or have not completed sufficient psychological studies to satisfy the requirements of the BPS. Associate members do not have voting rights at the Annual General Meeting, which normally takes place at the residential conference in the spring.

Membership fees

BACIP membership costs £30.00 annually for waged members (regardless of grade), and £12.00 for spousal members and unwaged members (regardless of grade). Members may also contribute to a hardship bursary to provide financial assistance for students and clinical trainees who could not otherwise attend BACIP conferences.
