Background
International conferences for leaders and others in the Christian Brethren assemblies in the Caribbean were resumed at a conference in St Kitts in July 2014. The St Kitts conference agreed to establish a continuation committee under the chairmanship of Hadyn Marshall (St. Vincent and the Grenadines), with one representative from each Caribbean territory where there are Brethren assemblies. The purpose of the committee is to carry forward matters which the conference considered important for the health of Brethren churches in the Caribbean and to organize a further conference in 2017 and at four-yearly intervals thereafter. The committee is now meeting regularly by electronic means, and is circulating monthly items for prayer and a regular news
letter. Contact the Secretary.
