Radio 4 to broadcast Bicentenary Baptist service live 

BBC Radio 4 is to broadcast its live Sunday morning service from Cannon Street Memorial Baptist Church, Birmingham next weekend (19 October)

The service is the first of three that day which celebrate the bicentenary of the relationship between the Baptist Unions of Jamaica and Great Britain, and BMS World Mission.

The speaker will be Karl Johnson, the General Secretary of the Jamaica Baptist Union, while there will also be contributions from Lynn Green, General Secretary of our Baptist Union.

The service and broadcast begins at 8.10am. There will be two further services at the church, at 11am and 6.30pm. 

‘This is going to be an unique service, an absolutely brilliant occasion where Baptists around the world will be celebrating 200 years of partnership between Jamaican and British Baptists,’ said Wale Hudson-Roberts, Racial Justice networker for our Baptist Union.

‘200 years ago George Liele went to Jamaica to establish churches. Soon after John Rowe was called to help and develop these churches.

‘So now, we as Baptists, both Jamaican and British, feel it is absolutely appropriate to reflect and celebrate this very special milestone.
‘Please do join us for this very important service.’
We will place a link once the service is uploaded to BBCiPlayer, both here on the website and via our social media channels.
The services are part of a series of events celebrating the 200-year relationship between Jamaican and British Baptists, many of which are taking place in October.
