This year, the FIEC Senior Pastors' Forum will take place from 4.00pm, Monday, 2 July to 4.00pm, Tuesday, 3 July in the Frederick Barker Room at Moore Theological College, Newtown.
At the Forum we will be exploring how we can work together to be more effective in planting churches around Australia. We will spend time identifying areas of need, strategic importance, and opportunity; we will also consider where our blockages may lie; and we will explore how we can cooperate, potentially pooling people, finances, and other resources to pioneer new work.
We will also be giving time to consider best practice for our churches when it comes to 'trellis' matters like governance, boards of reference, codes of conduct, safe ministries, constitutions, insurance, relationships with FIEC, and the like. Over the next few months the Exec will be considering these matters and we plan to share our thoughts and findings so that we can all be better prepared for discussion at our conferences.
Please plan to arrive in time to start at 4.00pm on the Monday.
Please register so accommodation arrangements can be finalised.
Note: there is no need to pay just yet - we just need an indication of who is coming.
We will be in touch about payment in a few weeks.
