Church Revitalisation’s Mission is “To enable struggling churches to become centres of gospel ministry and growth”. We want them to rediscover their gospel vision and grow into healthy and vibrant communities of believers.
Our Church Revitalisation Coordinator Phil Walter longs to see struggling churches become healthy, vibrant and strengthened to carry the gospel to their communities.
He is now working alongside churches to help restore church health and to encourage churches to think through their gospel vision:
“When a church experiences numerical decline, it can be for a variety of reasons. There is still a gospel heart in many of these smaller church communities but the strength and vitality to carry out that gospel work has diminished over the years. Through various means, we will work creatively with churches seeking to advise, offer possible solutions and - where we can - journey with them from decline to health. Often, such a journey is not without pain as we take an honest view of the churches health. However, as Jesus reminds us in Revelation we must ‘strengthen what remains’.”
If you are interested in either being considered for revitalisation, or indeed as a larger church who could help a revitalisation process, please get in touch using our contact form.
Our Pastors’ Network exists to provide support and encouragement to serving pastors of Independent churches resident in the UK. Its aim is to help to uphold biblical standards, and to stimulate a pastor’s spiritual development in a way that will enhance effectiveness in gospel ministry for the long-term.
Through membership of the Pastors’ Network we accredit individuals so that churches can be assured of their character and gifting. Accreditation also affirms the theological, moral and spiritual standards of such men.
Finding suitable gospel workers for church vacancies can be hard – especially for Independent churches. Which is why we provide a public page on our website where FIEC affiliated churches can advertise details of any ministry opportunities.
We believe that women have been given all sorts of ministry gifts, and that our churches are poorer if these gifts are not developed and used. That’s why we want to grow our network of women serving in our churches to connect them for mutual support and encouragement.
