Baptists Together hold a common value; that we are a Movement which shares a hunger for God’s coming Kingdom and seeks to confront evil, injustice and hypocrisy and challenges worldly attitudes to power, wealth, status and security both within and beyond our Union. 

Reflections and responses 

Coronavirus - essential advice for churches

All updated advice for churches from 20 July can be found on our essential guidance page

There is also more information regarding the Government’s furlough scheme in the Churches as Employers guide.

As the Government has begun to relax some aspects of lockdown, we are aware how many documents and updates that have been issued to help church communities negotiate the new terrain.

We know that all the information and risk assessments and advice updates issued in the past few weeks can feel quite overwhelming.  We have certainly never walked this way before, but we walk together down new paths, in the grace and strength of our Lord.

We are praying for you as you continue to pick your way through this strange land; we pray for the peace of our Triune God to rest on you and your church community.  

The latest in our series of Baptists Together Prayer broadcasts featured Lois Delong, who has recently finished a gap year in a church Academy programme in Alive Lincoln, focussing on serving Young Adults and worship. Lois also participated in the Baptist Union Inspiring Leadership Programme in 2018 Lois was praying alongside General Secretary Lynn Green, and the broadcast was BSL Interpreted.
