No Limits! FCC Annual Connect Conference

Our FCC Annual Connect Conference will be held on Saturday 16th July 2016.  Our theme ‘No Limits’ will explore the various ways our missional imagination and engagement can be expressed as we seek to follow Jesus today.  There will be a variety of practical workshops plus a wide variety of resources on offer.  We will also be ordaining new women and men to Christian ministry.  In addition we will be dedicating the new church building of our hosts Rhema Faith Ministries Birmingham on this day.  This predominately  Eritrean congregation is doing outstanding work in ministering to this community in central Birmingham.  They will be providing some ethnic food and worship as part of the day’s events.  The conference is free but we will be taking up an offering towards costs.
