BT Round-up May 2022Baptist Times News Round-up - 19 May 2022


Last weekend saw the return of an onsite Baptist Assembly for the first time since 2019 (and the first ever hybrid event), and this month's Baptist Times News Round-up features a number of reports from the gathering in Bournemouth.

These include the Saturday morning AGM and message from General Secretary Lynn Green; the induction of new President Hayley Young and the introduction of her Building a Bigger Table theme; and the Sunday morning sermon from Alan Donaldson, based on John 15: 1-8 and its encouragement to dwell in Jesus in these disorientating times.

All the sessions can be revisited on the Baptist Assembly YouTube channel. 

This email also features the usual mix of stories, opinion pieces, jobs and other notices, which happily include an encouraging number of baptisms, many from Easter Sunday. Do you have news of a baptism you'd like to share? If so, don't hesitate to get in touch!

A forthcoming event to note - our Joint Public Issues Team is exploring how our churches can respond to the cost of living crisis next week (24 and 25 May) - full details here.

With all good wishes,

Paul Hobson
Faith and Society Editor/Writer
