Church planting

The planting of new churches is one of the best ways of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Grace-filled church communities have a major impact upon fractured and lonely people.

Church planting primary image

Through FIEC Mission we seek to provide help, encouragement, wisdom and insight to churches who wish to multiply gospel work in this way. We recognise that each community is unique and that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ church planting model, yet there is much benefit to be gained from pooling the ideas, experiences and resources from across our Fellowship.

We are currently investigating how we can connect regional church planting mentors with aspiring church planters, as well as developing networks with seasoned practitioners.

If you have questions about our plans then please contact Andy Paterson by using our contact form.

We have also been conducting research into current church plants within our Fellowship. You can read more about the project here and see the data on the map below:

    Revitalising churches

    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 number of varying reasons. The gospel heart remains, but the strength and vitality to carry out that work has diminished over the years.

    Evangelists

    The role and work of an ‘evangelist’ has been overlooked by many Christians, or else it has been too broadly defined and understood to the exclusion of those so gifted. The reality is that evangelists are integral to local church life - and we need more of them.

    Church in the community

    "Evangelism or social action?" We believe that question is an unhelpful one. Christians should be work hard to be a blessing as they share both the gospel and their lives with their neighbours.

    Working cross-culturally

    The reality of multicultural Britain means that we now have the world on our doorstep. World mission begins at home.

    The global family

    Every local church needs a global heart. The alternative simply isn't biblical. We want to help churches to be equipped for the global challenge.
