Baptists Together Monthly Update - January 2018
Happy New Year and welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.
We begin 2018 with a video story from Devonport Community Baptist Church, which is using lots of creative ways to share the Gospel and engage with their community.
Our Assembly website has now been updated with more information about this year’s Assembly in Peterborough, on 12 May. Do have a look at what’s on offer, encourage your church to join us and get ready to book your place(s). Registration will be open from 22 January - 29 April.
I’d also like to highlight the Joint Public Issues Team conference ‘Brave New World’ taking place in Manchester on 17 March. This will look at what it means to be a Christian in the midst of our changing world - with with keynote speakers Stella Creasy MP and Peter Oborne, columnist at the Daily Mail.
Look out for the three copies of the Spring 2018 Baptists Together magazine being sent to Church Secretaries around mid-January. Please share these with your church.
As we journey together into 2018 let’s reflect on these words from our prayer diary:
The New Year starts off for many with resolutions and promises. We pray for ourselves, to take new steps on our journey with Christ during 2018. Teach us to receive the future you have planned for us; give us a new vision of you, that we may feel your compassion, your anger and your love. May your Gospel flood our lives, infuse our churches with life, flood our world with hope.
