Launch of New Baptist Film 

1000 views for new Baptist fil

Baptists from the past and present are celebrated in a newfilm that has been launched on You Tube

Being Baptist – Called Gathered Sent is a fifteen minute film commemorating the 400th anniversary of a Baptist presence in the United Kingdom.

Involving six Baptist churches and four Associations it intersperses tales from Baptist history with interviews of Baptists today on a variety of topics including women’s ministry,worship, baptism, evangelism and church meetings.

The film has been produced not only to mark the 400th anniversary but to accompany the popular Baptist Basics leaflet series produced by the Baptist Union of Great Britain Publications Department 2009 as a resource to help churches explain to prospective new members what it means tobelong to a Baptist church.

In his introduction to the film, BUGB general secretary the Revd Jonathan Edwards, describes Baptists as a ‘movement of Christians’.
'“We are really best described as a movement of Christians.  We have been gathered together by Christ, and then in the power of the Spirit we have been sent out to work for him.

'These are really challenging days so it is a good moment to look back at our radical history, to remind ourselves of where we have come from and to remind ourselves of the journey we are on with the Holy Spirit.'
