Revitalisation is about helping smaller churches to rediscover their gospel vision and grow into healthy and vibrant communities of believers.
Whilst many gospel churches grow through a wise, faithful and creative missional mindset, the reality is that a number of churches experience numerical decline for a variety of reasons. There is still a gospel heart in many of these church communities but the strength and vitality to carry out that gospel work has diminished over the years.
We want to help churches like this to re-capture their gospel vision and re-structure their work according to the new opportunities that have arisen in their communities.
Currently, we are in the process of appointing a Church Revitalisation Co-ordinator who will help some of our smaller churches to spearhead a revitalisation initiative. He will work creatively with churches to help them think through their mission and ministry as we take this project forward.
If you are keen to discuss church revitalisation – either as a small church who like to be part of this initiative or 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.
