FCC Connect Conference – Called to Create, Sat 17/11/2018

The date has been set for this year’s FCC Connect Conference – please put it in your church diary now:
FCC Annual Connect Conference: Called to Create
Saturday, 17 November 2018, registration from 09.30, conference 10.00am-4.30pm

South Aston United Reformed Church, Upper Sutton Street, Birmingham B6 5BN.

Our theme is Called to Create – this is about God as creator calling us as his new creation to be co-creators with him of his kingdom. This should be evidenced in three areas of influence which our workshops will consider: family, church, and community. This allows for and encourages mission in the arts and creative spaces in our local contexts, but it is much larger as it relates to the call of creatively engaging missionally in these three areas.
Keynote speaker: Carol Kingston-Smith
author, lecturer, former missionary, social activist:
see her biography here: https://www.faith2share.net/trustees

There will be a resources exhibition. Entrance is free. An offering will be taken on the day.

Booking is essential for catering purposes Please book here.

World Communion Sunday 7th October 2018

World Communion Sunday takes place on the first Sunday in October each year. This rich ecumenical expression of unity focuses on what binds all Christians rather than what divides.
 
This year, on the 7th October, why not encourage your church or ministry to join in this visible expression of unity?
This video demonstrates how Christians across the planet express this yearly event.

Places of Worship – Security Funding Scheme

The Government have just re-opened their fund for protective security measures to places of worship in England and Wales that are vulnerable to hate crime. Bids can be submitted until 10 August 2018. Places of worship can submit bids for projects costing up to £70,000 for protective security measures and will be required to contribute at least 20 percent of the total cost of the project. The Home Office will award funding on a discretionary basis up to a maximum of £56,000 per place of worship.

To meet the criteria for consideration for funding, your application will need to demonstrate that your place of worship is vulnerable to hate crime or has been subjected to an attack within the last 2 years and which was motivated by hostility or prejudice based on religion or belief.
