During the first Covid lockdown in 2020 a group of like-minded independent Reformed Baptist Pastors, from the UK (who meet regularly in a fraternal) were in contact with other likeminded men from across the world. On account of the restrictions in place throughout much of the world during Covid, it was decided that a three-day online seminar should be broadcast from the UK in September 2020.
This was originally intended primarily for a specific audience. However, many in the UK became aware and interested in attending online and the broadcast was viewed in many different parts of the world.
Later in 2020, during further lockdowns in the UK, it was felt a second conference should be arranged. This second conference was intended to focus on the UK scene and address the pressing issue of Marriage and Family. The objective was to supplement the regular ministry of the local churches by focusing on a particular subject that could be addressed more extensively than might ordinarily be the case in Pastoral ministry.
Marriage and Family life have been under attack for many years in Western Society and the unusual circumstances brought about by the Covid lockdowns brought to light the strain even some Christian marriages were experiencing. So it was decided that Biblical teaching on this subject should be the theme of the January 2021 conference.
This conference had to be online only, but was again watched in many countries live and after the broadcasts. The long term plan remains for any future conferences to have both a physical and online attendance.
