Back to Better

Ashburnham Place 1st - 3rd March 2022

hayley young

This year we welcomed Revd Hayley Young, the  incoming President of the Baptist Union for 2022/23.
Hayley has over 13 years experience as a Baptist Minister and is the Transitional Strategic Leader (Regional Minister) for the Northern Baptist Association. Hayley talked to us about the need to 'build bigger table' - making space for others and creating a space to discuss life and faith. If you missed Hayley's sessions, you can read more about this theme on her website

Also leading a session was Anthony Cotterill, the Territorial Commander at the Salvation Army, who we all very much enjoyed at our 2021 Zoom Conference. Using an unforgettable analogy of the London sewers Anthony reminded us of the need to pioneer new and fresh expressions of church before the old models collapse and to remove blockages and let the water flow. 

We are grateful to Gill Davison for leading our worship throughout the conference and you can download the call to worship that Gill used on Wednesday morning here.
