What happened at the Autumn Assembly
Delegates from across our movement gathered at Knightsbridge Baptist Church on the 18th May to celebrate and discern how God is at work among and through us.
President Mark Foley shared from Hebrews 1. Mark observed that often when reading scripture, we put the spotlight on the wrong thing and focus on the characters of the stories rather than God, who works through rebellious and sinful characters. The events of scripture tell us about God; who He is, what He’s like, what He’s doing. It’s all about God. What we do is in response to God, His grace, love and mercy to include us in His mission.
The agenda for the evening included welcoming Camden Baptist Church as a Member Church. Camden is a historical member church, who had regathered under Holdfast Baptist and are now ready to become autonomous again.
SoulSpace Christian Community were welcomed as Affiliate Members. SoulSpace was founded by members from Cheltenham Baptist, and moving forward they will focus on hospitality, prayer and justice.
Richard Jansen, Rod Holmes, Nona Gregory, Ross Fairbank, Cung Hnin and Geoff Lohmeyer had their accreditations recognised (pictured above).
