This coming Sunday (on 16th April), we are delighted that our Morning Worship will be led by the Rev Hayley Young, President of the Baptist Union, the national umbrella organisation for Baptist churches in the UK, to which we are affiliated.
We are very excited to have her here and look forward to hearing the message she brings us. We also welcome those joining us from other churches, especially friends from St Andrew’s Baptist Church, who hope to be with us for the service.
Hayley’s theme for her presidential year is ‘Building a Bigger Table‘.
As a Baptist Movement we have the opportunity to bring Jesus to our communities by expanding a table: providing the kind of hospitality that Jesus offers. We have a challenge ahead of us about how we can create a bigger table: to welcome more people. To spend time listening, learning, hearing, knowing and respecting everyone.
