An increasing number of churches are joining FIEC because they share our vision to be “Independent churches working together to reach the nation for Christ.” John Stevens introduces us to the newest members of the family.
Next week, our National Recognition Team will meet to consider applications from churches to join our Fellowship. Here, John Stevens introduces us to the newest members of the family who joined in the Spring.
During the AGM at our Leaders’ Conference last week we prayed for the new churches and plants that have joined the FIEC family in the last 12 months. They include those John Stevens introduces to us here.
Every so often we travel to a region of Great Britain to host a Gospel Vision Evening. These are designed to gather Independent churches to reflect on the national picture and consider ways they can work together locally. Richard Underwood reflects on the latest one in Suffolk.
At the latest meeting of our National Recognition Team we welcomed six churches to the family and noted four new church plants or gatherings, while some other churches closed or moved away from FIEC. We asked John Stevens to fill us in.
As a Fellowship of Independents, how can we support churches who share our biblical convictions but are currently part of denominations that do not? John Stevens explains our position with reference to Newquay United Reformed Church who affiliated to FIEC in late 2016.
