If we are serious about Independent churches working together to reach Britain for Christ, we have to recognise that Great Britain is made up of distinctive nations and regions. That’s why we have members of our ministry team who focus their work in specific areas of Britain.
We also encourage church leaders to build fruitful gospel relationships across towns, cities and regions. One way we are seeking do this is through our programme of Local Conferences. You can find a conference near you on our events page – the following year’s conferences are uploaded each December.
Scotland & Wales
We have a Scotland Director who works with our Scottish Vision Team to serve Independent churches in Scotland. We also partner with Edinburgh Theological Seminary on the Certificate in Independent Church Ministry.
When we gathered our Welsh churches to talk about gospel advance in Wales, there was no appetite for a Welsh Director. However, we are seeing increasing numbers of churches join us in Wales and relationships are being forged at our conferences.
There are Welsh and Scottish pastors serving as members of the FIEC Trust Board.
There are more than 75 FIEC churches within the M25 in London and we work to encourages them to forge strong relationships with one another. We recognise the strategic importance of London, so appointed our first ever London Director in 2017.
We want to foster and grow a sense of togetherness in the gospel among our London churches while recognising that growth in Independency in the English capital is part of our national ambition to reach Britain for Christ.
