Election for the Baptists Together President 2021-22

Further to our call for nominations for the position of Baptists Together President in 2021-22, and following the stipulations of our constitution, we have received two nominations and these are now offered for election. 

We hope that all our churches will be keen to engage with this important decision.  Please do prayerfully consider which candidate you believe should serve our Union as President.  The question for discernment is 'Who is God calling to be the President of our Union in the coming season?'

The two candidates are (in alphabetical order):-

  • Geoff Colmer (nominated by the Central and East Midland Baptist Associations)
  • Alex Harris (nominated by the Heart of England and West of England Baptist Associations) 

Candidate Interviews

To help with this process of discernment, we have interviewed each of the candidates.  These interviews are available to watch here.


Each candidate has provided a short profile with information about the theme and focus they would wish to explore should they be successful:
