From The Chairman

Carlisle Diocesan Evangelical Fellowship seeks to promote unity and friendship amongst evangelicals
in the Diocese of Carlisle in our shared witness to the good news of Jesus Christ. Through our fellowship
we seek to equip and encourage God's people for mission and ministry as we express a growing
partnership in the gospel. We seek to share the best of our evangelical convictions with the wider
church, providing fellowship in prayer and support across the church traditions of our diocese.

As we engage with the diocesan vision for growth we will aim to invite speakers to our meetings who
will challenge and inspire us all in our discipleship and ministry. Our meetings and events are open to all
and designed to be of benefit to all in our diocese. We value your prayers as we seek to serve the cause
of Christ in word and action.
