September 11/12 2009

During the last 20 years several Episcopal Evangelical Assemblies  have provided an opportunity for Evangelicals of all sorts in the Episcopal Church to come together for mutual encouragement and to challenge each other to grow in the Christian faith and life.

The next EEA is on September 11/12, when VTS has again made its facilities available to Evangelicals staying in the Episcopal Church. Michael Lawson, Archdeacon of Hampstead (London) and chairman of the Church of England Evangelical Council, will be our keynote speaker, and will describe his experience of helping Evangelicals minister and flourish  successfully in an environment only a little less hostile to them than our own.

Also speaking at the conference, on the theme Of Babies and Bathwater, will be the Revd Chuck Alley, Rector of St Matthew’s, Richmond.

The conference will begin at noon on Friday September 11th, and end at noon Saturday September 12th. Further details will be posted on this site over the next several weeks. Please put the Assembly on your calendar, and pass the information to others you think will be interested. Register now—e-mail evangelicalfellowship[at]earthlink.net

The Church of England Evangelical Council was founded in 1960 to promote effective consultation between Evangelical leaders in the Church of England, in order that the evangelical heritage may be better applied to contemporary opportunities and problems in church and nation, and to encourage diocesan evangelical fellowships, societies, and other groups working within the evangelical constituency, and those working within the formal structures of the Church of England.
