What's happening at ecclesias around the world?

The Fraternal Gatherings section from The Christadelphian magazine has, for many years, been a comprehensive list of the events happening at ecclesias throughout the world. For convenience, this will also appear here on our website, and be updated on a monthly basis; thereby making it easier to access the information.

  • Any new events added since last month are highlighted.
  • Events shown in italics may be of particular interest for young people.
  • Whereas limited but essential information can be found in the magazine for events occurring in the next few months, full details for all events are shown below.
  • Where no venue has been notified, it is assumed the event takes place at the ecclesia’s usual meeting place.
