Annual Gathering now 30th -31st of October
In the light of recent developments concerning Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Network Annual Gathering due at the end of March. The new dates are the 30th & 31st October in The Kings Hall,Edinburgh.
We have wanted to be proactive, in light of countries around the world, banning international travel, large gatherings, closing schools etc. Hearing the forecast that the outbreak will only increase in the next couple of weeks, leading possibly to similar closures in Scotland, we wanted to make the decision sooner rather than later.
We were so looking forward to our Annual Gathering and what God would do among us, and are hugely disappointed to be taking this action. We are not being caught in the fear surrounding this pandemic, but we have a duty to be wise in the way we protect those who are vulnerable.
We continue to pray for our Fellowship of Leaders and Network of Churches, and please let us know if there is anyway that we can help.
Thank you for your understanding,
Keith Short, on behalf of the leadership team.
Who we are
fellowship of leaders : network of churches
We see Scottish Network Churches as a fellowship of leaders and a network of churches, playing our part in the unity of the Spirit and the Kingdom movement. We meet in Local Hubs monthly, National Hubs bi-annually and our Annual Gathering.
We sense God is calling us to develop into a networked movement in Scotland based on the apostolic role modelled by Jesus and his humble, serving, empowering, relational apostolic ministry. We want to partner with churches, leaders and ministries to further God’s mission in Scotland.
Genuine, authentic friendship that values being together before doing together. Resourcing and welcoming others with generosity, serving the Kingdom, not building an empire. Enabling local churches and serving leaders in the mission of seeking to bring the Kingdom of Heaven in practical and relevant ways.
How we Gather
We intentionally gather together for fellowship and friendship and make no apology for the time spent relating together. We recognise the need to continually be learning from Jesus and from one another. We seek to nurture mission by encouraging missional projects, events and initiatives.
