On 4th January 2018 around 150 Church Leaders from across Nottingham will gather in the Council House in the heart of the city to worship God and pray together at the very start of the new year.
More details will follow shortly, but for now please put Thursday 4th January 2018, 7.30pm - 9.30pm, in your diaries. If you are not a church leader it would be appreciated if you could forward this email on to them informing them of this important gathering.

So excited about all that God is doing to unite his church, release his power and bless this city!

ECG - Equipping, Calling, Going

ECG - Equipping, Calling, Going is an event with a Methodist flavour that has been influential in shaping the spiritual journey’s of many Methodists.

Next year’s event will be in the Scarborough Spa Complex from Tuesday 3rd - Sunday 8th April.

 Our main Bible teacher will be Rev Dr Elaine Heath, Dean of Duke University, leader of the Foundation for Missional Wisdom and author of books such as ‘The Mystic Way of Evangelism’ and ‘God unbound: Wisdom’ from Galatians for the Anxious Church. She is world renowned for her 21st century interpretation of the Methodist tradition and will be exploring Wesley’s 5 means of grace in her bible studies.

There will be a seminar streams and workshops on different topics including a stream on healthy church hosted by Revd Graham Horsley, Connexional Fresh Expressions Missioner exploring themes of discipleship - what it means to be a Spirit-led church and engaging with the wider world with Kingdom values. Each session will involve sharing stories from a number of people doing exciting projects so that a practical pragmatic approach is taken, exploring real successes and the problems that have been overcome. There’ll be opportunity to ask questions and share your stories too.

We continue to develop our exciting 18-25s programme developed and resourced by leaders from the 18-25 age bracket. This is one of the most British significant gatherings of young leaders in the Methodist tradition. We also continue to develop and expand our youth programme led by our own youth team and a full programme of children’s activities is led by Pulse Children’s Ministries. Finally a range of fringe including drama, dance, comedy and concerts is included and we also incorporate outreach opportunities through the week.

If you’ve been - you know how good it is. If you haven’t, we hope you’ll join us for some post Easter spiritual refreshment - better still bring a group from your church.

Bookings can be made through the website www.ecgevent.org.uk where an early bird discount is applicable until 30th Nov. Hotel accommodation can be booked through the office at the Grand Hotel, Scarborough.
