From BrethrenPedia

Jump to: navigation, search

See Branches of Plymouth Brethren to explain abbreviation types (although in short: OB (& TW-P) are Halls & Chapels within the "open brethren" (although GH's (generally) maintain a separate network from the Chapels). EB/TW/TW-N are "Careful" Brethren (similar to OB Halls), and BC are (generally) independent community churches with early or indirect PB influence, and will (usually) not consider themselves "Brethren").  AA/CA refers to assemblies of African or Caribbean origin, or predominant demographic, although all ethnicities are overly welcome in any assemblies.

The above primer link expands on the abbreviations, and also contains introduction to this (and other) sheets within the overall History. There have been scores of branches with their own distinctive networks and strengths within the history of the PB, and many branches continue to flourish today, and while no assembly or gathering is identical to the others, each is thought to maintain a fervent desire for simplicity in gathering around the Lord Jesus, though practices and secondary doctrines may vary culturally and/or preferentially as autonomous (yet inter-dependent) local churches.

Assemblies are sorted geographically, and will, D.V., eventually have further history within. Red links on Brethrenpedia are presently undeveloped, and blue links contain data. Appreciate patience with our progress, and if you'd like to help, please contact any of the editing team, preferably via social media.

We saw some fruit for the Lord there, and had the pleasure of seeing the two small assemblies there coming together to remember the Lord and seeking to go on in fellowship together. After being nine weeks in El Paso we went to Harper, Texas and had a few good meetings in an unused church building. We visited practically every home with tracts. We met quite a few people clearly saved and we read God's Word with them and sought to help them on in the ways which be in Christ. Please pray for us."

Each Lord's day, instead of having an empty chapel, it is now well filled and several have been added to their number.

They have three weekly radio programs connected with the work, conducted by brother Nelson. "Chapel Echoes" is broadcast every Sunday morning at 7:30, "Chapel Meditations" every Monday noon, and the "Gospel Round Table" every Friday evening at 6:00.
