The latest information is in The Brethren Movement Worldwide: Key information, third edition (2011) edited by Ken Newton and Andrew Chan (Australia) for the IBCM5 conference. Copy for download. For a printed copy, please contact IBCM, to whom corrected and updated information should also be sent.
Brethren Information Network
At the IBCM3 conference it was agreed to establish a Brethren Information Network. For the time being, this website and the Brethren Educational Network website are jointly fulfilling this informational role.
