Our General Secretary, Lynn Green, has recently written to encourage people to keep in touch.

She writes "As I’ve been travelling around our churches and Associations, people ask how they can keep in touch with what’s happening in other churches, through Associations, and nationally.  We don’t have the printed Baptist Times any more, but we do have a wealth of ways that news, information, and stories are shared which are open to everyone to access."

You are already on the number one place to go to for information on all our activities – local, regional, national and international.  Our website is mobile and tablet friendly and you can:

We are also present on social media – on Facebook and we have two Twitter feeds: @baptistuniongb and @baptisttimes.  We use these channels to share news, events and resources daily.

Through this website you can sign up to receive updates direct to your email inbox.  We send two regular e-news emails:

  • the Monthly Update is sent on the first Wednesday of every month and is a round-up of the latest events and resources.
  • the Baptist Times News Round-Up is sent on the second and fourth Wednesday, with links to news stories and comment articles that have appeared in the Baptist Times online, plus news of baptism, deaths, events and general notices.  This email is also available to download as a word document – perfect for church newsletters!
  • To sign up fill in your details at the bottom of the page.

Baptists Together Magazine is published in January, April and September, and four copies are sent to every church via the Church Secretary or Administrator.  You can read the magazine for free online, or take out an individual subscription for £6.60 a year and it will be sent direct to your door.  Full of news, interviews, comment, events and resources, this really is a must for interesting thought-provoking articles.

We really do want our Union to feel like one team – and hope these ways of communication can help to ensure everyone feels included.  Do please be in touch if you have stories you’d like to share with the Baptists Together family – we’d love to hear from you.
