Local Conferences 2024
Join with other local church leaders and leadership teams as we encourage each other to serve our Lord Jesus in our local situations.
During the first six months of 2024 we will be holding 27 local conferences at venues across the country. We are picking up an aspect of our 2023 Leaders’ Conference: how we minister as those justified by grace.
We believe in justification by grace alone, through faith alone – that forms the core of our message. But how does that message change how we do ministry?
How does it combat the drift towards ‘proving ourselves’ by our ministry? How does it change how we live and lead as teams of elders, staff, and others?
We will explore these questions together alongside time for fellowship, prayer, and eating together.
Who should attend?
These conferences are not just for pastors!
There is value in leadership teams coming together to these kinds of events, so we hope that the local nature of the conferences will allow teams of leaders to join us from local churches.
We would encourage pastors to invite and bring whoever they think may find the conference helpful: women in ministry, elders, deacons, ministry wives, youth workers, or others.
Please do feel free to encourage other local pastors – including those who are not affiliated with FIEC but who would share our gospel heart - to attend a local conference with you.
Dates and venues
Most conferences will take place from 10am - 3pm, with lunch and refreshments provided. Some timings may vary so please check when booking.
You can find the closest conference to you on the map and list below - they are spread across the country between February and June 2024.
If the one nearest to you is not on a suitable date please do book for another one nearby.
Booking and food
Attendance is free of charge (except for London which is £15), but you must still book your place in advance. You can also give an optional £10 donation when booking to help us cover costs.
