Johnny Prime took a group of pastors away in January to help him better understand the work and ministry of the Pastors’ Network. As he settles into his new role, we asked him to fill us in on plans for this coming year.
Inspired by one of our conferences for women, Sue Cunliffe explains how Alverstoke Evangelical Church organised their own retreat for the women in their fellowship. She wants to inspire other churches to consider it.
One of the ways we have been developing the work and ministry of FIEC for more than a decade is by investing in the biblical ministry of women in our churches. Elisabeth Smyth introduces us to the Women’s Ministry Group which helps to shape this work across the Fellowship.
Over the next week or so, every FIEC church will be sent a new Code of Best Practice which offers advice and guidance on how churches should care for their pastors. We asked Richard Underwood to introduce it for us.
For the first time ever, we hosted a retreat for ministry wives at the end of May. This gathered more than 30 women together to have a break from some of the pressures pastoral ministry can place on ministry wives. Kay Kinnaird was among the group in Worcestershire.
We’re delighted to announce that Jonathan Prime (Johnny) will become our new Pastoral Ministries Director when Richard Underwood retires from his FIEC ministry at the end of 2017. Phil Topham has been finding out how this transition will take place.
