National Hub Zoom : race, the other, and the diverse beauty of church
One of the values of the Network is inclusivity and we also believe that the Bible is clear about the responsibility of Christians to stand up for the marginalised, recognising, unbent unintentionally, that we have not always been very good at including those who are not like us. At this Month’s Hub we will be exploring ways in which we can hear from the margins, trying to ensure that our actions meet our intentions. We will be hearing from folks whose origins are not Scottish, and learning from them what it feels like to be in a different country/culture.

26th and 27th March 2021 - Annual Gathering : heavent sent
Annual Gathering : heaven sent
In the light of the ongoing developments concerning Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to further postpone the Network Annual Gathering to 26th and 27th March 2021.
It has once again been a difficult decision because there are signs that restrictions could be considerably lifted by October. However, we do not have the confidence that the situation for larger gatherings will be back to normal by then. We are also aware that travel plans and accommodation would need to be booked now for both delegates and visiting speakers and there is just too much uncertainty to make firm arrangements. Therefore, as a Core Team we unanimously felt it right to postpone the Gathering.
We recognise that this is very disappointing and may cause inconvenience to those who had planned to be with us in October, but it does give us time to plan and prepare for a really powerful event next year with the speakers that we feel the Lord has put on our hearts to share with us.
Meanwhile, we have been immensely encouraged by the monthly National Hub zoom meetings and the obvious desire for so many to meet in this way. We will continue to organise zoom meetings to keep us connected.
We continue to pray for our Fellowship of Leaders and Network of Churches, and please let us know if there is any way that we can help.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have already paid for the Gathering, you can either keep your booking at 2020 prices, instead of the new year’s prices, or we will refund you upon request (your refund will be made through the same system you paid for your ticket, so will be refunded to the card used). Please advise which option you choose.
Thank you for your understanding,
Phil Arbon, on behalf of the Scottish Network Core 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.
