Baptists Together Monthly Update - August 2017
Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.
Please be praying for Cornerstone Church, Rhondda - our featured Home Mission story this month. This new church is being officially launched in September, but has already been reaching young people in the area and witnessed three baptisms last Sunday.
Many churches will have young people preparing to go to University for the first time this Autumn, or may have students moving to their area to study. Student Christian Movement (SCM) has published a Welcoming Students to your Church resource, which is designed to help churches reach out and support students during their time at university.
For Messy Churches, and those churches considering starting one, have a look at the new Messy Church does Science book, edited by Baptist minister Dave Gregory. The fun experiments contained in it show how science and faith mix and help children and adults appreciate the wonder of creation.
Could I also draw your attention to a series of Pension Roadshows this autumn which will be invaluable for churches which are members of the Baptist Pension Scheme Defined Benefits (DB) Scheme? Designed for treasurers, deacons and ministers, they will inform you about what is happening to address the current deficit in the Scheme and the potential impact it may have on your church.
