Orkney has the shortest scheduled air route in the world (with a flight time of one minute and 30 seconds), a village that predates Stonehenge, 18 hours of daylight in the summer, and, as of November, FIEC’s most northerly recognised church plant. Andy Hunter, our Scotland Director, has just returned from visiting the plant and tells us more.
Next week, FIEC National Director John Stevens will speak at the annual Gospel Yorkshire conference at Dewsbury Evangelical Church. Gospel Yorkshire is a church planting initiative with the objective of transforming the county with the good news of Christ as Steve Horton explains.
It’s always a joy to hear from young church plants in the FIEC family. Ian Goodson brings us up to date with the progress and ongoing needs of Grace Church Wakefield, which has now been meeting as a church for three years.
Christ Church Liverpool has 25 different nationalities attending the church every week. So how can churches with such diverse communities best reach the nations on their doorstep? Ken Lippold introduces us to a conference that is seeking to start the conversation.
It’s always exciting to read about new churches starting. Phil Topham’s been finding out about North Church Leicester – a recognised church plant which has been started by The Crowded House Loughborough.
