IN Isaiah 43:19 the prophet announces that God was doing something new among His people. Across the country there's a real sense of this being a season which is characterised by innovation and creativity in mission.

The Baptists Together National Pioneer Co-ordinators the Revd Roy Searle and the Revd Simon Goddard would love to get a fuller picture of the ‘new thing’ that God is doing among us, and so over the next few months they’re asking for your help. Maybe you’re involved in one or more of the following:

-           starting fresh expressions,

-           planting new congregations in housing developments,

-           experimenting with new ways of sharing the gospel in rural contexts,

-           mission through social enterprise,

-           bivocational or entrepreneurial ministry,

-           new ways of being and doing church,

-           creative mission projects,

-           or other pioneering initiatives.

If you are then they’d really appreciate you going online to share your story, along with your hopes and dreams for the future. Go to http://bit.ly/baptistnewthing and fill out the short online form. These stories will be used to inspire others, and to map what is happening across the country. Thanks to the generosity of the Baptist Insurance Company they also have some funding with which they are able to bless some of those who share their story with us.
These blessings will be in the form of small grants (likely to be between £250 and £500), but only submissions made before 31st October 2017 will be eligible for consideration.
