Election for the Baptists Together President 2020-21
Further to our call for nominations for the position of Baptists Together President in 2020-21, 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 the most appropriate candidate for this particular season in our Union’s life'.
