The Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches (EFCC) is an association of around 120 independent local churches in the Affinity partner.

The EFCC churches share a common doctrinal statement, called the Basis of Faith which is Reformed and Evangelical. As the EFCC churches are congregational, the EFCC does not have any denominational hierarchy. However, the Fellowship does have officers, including a general secretary. Some of their churches are also in membership of the Congregational Federation or of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC).

The EFCC is a member of the World Evangelical Congregational Fellowship (WECF). EFCC hosted the WECF's Triennial Conference in 2007 at Hothorpe Hall, Leicestershire.
