The Hub Conference

There has never been a clear 'route' into ministry for men and women from FIEC Churches, let alone a means of fellowship, networking and identity for those wishing to be trained for Independent church ministry. Now there is: it’s called The Hub Conference.

HUB (noun) a centre around which other things revolve or from which they radiate; a focus of activity, authority, etc.

The Hub Conference is an annual weekend conference in January which ran for the first time in 2013 (you can see a few photos here). Led by experienced FIEC pastors, evangelists, church planters, women’s workers, and children & youth workers, our aim is for The Hub to be the primary place in FIEC where individuals in, or considering, training can access the information, resources, advice and financial help they need.

The Hub Conference 2015 will take place 16th-18th January 2015 in Newport Pagnell (near Milton Keynes). Details will appear on our website nearer the time.
