...but God

The presence and actions of God change our perspective on our lives and the events that are part of them...

Welcome to the
ECM Biennial 2023

29th March - 5th April

What is the ECM Biennial?

The Biennial is a tremendous event where the whole ECM family of missionaries, partners, families, churches, Mobilisation Teams and supporters come together for a week of inspiration, encouragement, fellowship and fun.

We all love it and, after five years apart, we can't wait to be together again!

The Place

The Biennial will take place in the beautiful location of Umag, a small town and port on the north-western coast of Istria, Croatia.

We'll stay at the Sol Garden Istra Hotel, a four star hotel, ideal for families, with updated safety and health measures, and all the facilities necessary to provide ECMers with a wonderful experience.

Take a look at these gorgeous pictures of both the town of Umag and the Sol Garden Istra Hotel. If you didn't look forward to coming before, surely you will now!

The theme

...but God

Two of the most powerful words in Scripture. But God. We live in the midst of a society that grows more and more secular each day ...but God. There is war around us, millions of refugees, a financial crisis, a pandemic ...but God. We struggle in our lives, our ministries, facing a spiritual battle every day ...but God.

...but God.

God changes our reality entirely. His presence and his actions shape a new perspective before our eyes. Let us hold on to it. Let us explore these dramatic two words together and hold on to the God who is always in control.
