CiS subscription rates 2015-16

The basic CiS membership subscription was held at £30 for the best part of a decade but costs, especially postage costs, rose substantially during those years. The following subscription pattern was introduced in January 2014 and the intention is that they will remain the same for several years..

Basic subscription – worldwide


New basic (online journal) rates:

  • Standard membership (full, associate, joint): £36
  • Graduate membership (first two years after first or post-grad degree): £16
  • Full-time student membership: £6
  • Free student membership: available for one year, for all Christian students studying science or with an interest in science (school or post/undergraduate university students engaged in full-time study). Online journals and newsletters only.

To receive mailed paper copies of the journal (airmailed outside Europe) and including printed copies of PréCiS worldwide, add:

  • UK £4
  • Europe £10
  • Rest of World £14

NB.  All members who have paid to receive printed copies of the journal will also have online access to the journal website, if requested, at no extra cost.

5-year membership (standard rate members only)

Pay for 5 years in advance at 5 times the chosen subscription, for convenience and to safeguard against subscription increases in those 5 years.

Joint membership (standard rate members only)

Two people sharing the same mailing address can apply for joint membership, paying a single subscription and sharing one copy of mailed items.  This allows both members to benefit from CiS concessions such as reduced conference fees.  E-mail communications will be sent to a single e-mail address, for one member to forward to the other if necessary..


The faithful and generous support of CiS members, many of whom have added extra donations to their subscriptions, has been a great encouragement for the development of the work and ministry of CiS, and is much appreciated.

Membership renewals

Reminders are sent out in February or March (except where regular standing orders are already in place). You may still use the well-established procedures for renewal using mail or email communication with the Membership Secretary.

Or, you may renew your membership online using your user number and password.

In general, the online renewal date is set at 1 April;  this means that if you log on before this date it will show your membership details, including your renewal date, but not ask for renewal.  Logging on after the renewal date will bring up a screen asking you to renew.  If you wish to renew your membership before your online renewal date, please e-mail membership@cis.org.uk to ask for the date to be brought forward, to enable you to do this.

Online payment options include credit/debit card via PayPal (personal PayPal account not necessary), cheque or new standing order.
