Baptist Assembly 2017 

Next year's Assembly will be on Saturday 13 May in Harrogate.

Harrogate is a vibrant, cultural spa town with smart streets and plenty of places to eat & drink. In 2015 it was voted the "happiest place in Great Britain"
We are excited to be holding the Baptist Assembly at the Harrogate International Centre in 2017 and hope you will  join us. 

Due to the generosity of the Harrogate International Centre, we are also delighted to have the opportunity to gather to worship together on Sunday morning in addition to the event itself on Saturday.  So if you are planning to stay in Harrogate for the  weekend, why not plan to join us back at the Centre on Sunday morning for a communion service. 

Booking will open mid-January 2017, do book early to avoid disappointment. 
 We look forward to seeing you there.
