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. This will make it easier to access the information, and help you plan future weekends!

Events highlighted are new since last month. Events shown in italics may be of particular interest for young people. Some selected events can be booked online via YouthWeekends.com. This is an online booking service, which offers one-click booking for young people, and centralised administration for event organisers. Click here for more information (opens in a new window).
