If you need advice on anything to do with Independent church life here in the UK then it's a good idea to come and talk to us first.
FIEC Practical Services has often been the first point of call for churches seeking practical advice on all manner of subjects. In the past our advice was issued through the well-known forum of “Blue Pages”; a document posted to all of our churches every couple of months. However, it makes much more sense for this information to be collated and updated on our website so that you can more easily find the information you need. Notices of updates will be posted with the FIEC monthly News & Prayer, as well as on our News blog.
Our experience of working with independent evangelical churches means that the advice we are able to offer to churches is formulated to cover all sorts of issues, ranging from employment to registration of churches to Charity Commission requirements. We look at each situation as it comes to us and offer a tailor made solution to the problems and requests that churches present to us.
If you need to contact us to discuss any aspect of church life for which you require advice, help or assistance, then please contact Emma Shirtcliffe on 01858 411569 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

What do you do if your church has no one who wants to be a trustee or has experience of property? Who do you need to contact if you change your trustees?
How do you draw up a contract of employment? What information needs to be in your church governing document? What kind of agreement do you need in place if we want to rent out church property?
Children and vulnerable adults should be totally safe within our churches to learn about Jesus and to enjoy Christian fellowship without being put at risk. We do this primarily because it honours God, but we also want to make sure that we’re acting above reproach in the eyes of children’s parents, our communities and the government.
