Sharing our Story
We regularly feature stories from our churches and are particularly keen to hear and share of how churches are supporting each other and their local community in these unusual times. This week you can find our more about Ellesmere Port Community Ministry - click here to find out more

Celebrating Ministry
One regular feature of our annual Baptist Assembly is to recognise and celebrate those who have completed their probationary period as ministers. Because we are unable to hold a physical gathering this year, churches from each Baptist Association are invited to meet those from their area through this short video. Please share this, post it on your facebook page, use it in your online services to encourage everyone to celebrate the ministry of those we are welcoming from NWBA, and to pray for them in their different callings.

NWBA Online Service - Sunday 16th May
We will not be arranging our own NWBA online service for Sunday 16th May, as we are inviting all of our churches to join with the national online gathering as part of our Baptist Assembly. You can register for the full Assembly through this link. For the Sunday service only you can use this link. Our regular Sunday services will continue from Sunday 23rd May at least until the end of June. Our latest midweek reflection for personal and small group use can be found on our reflections page.

As our health and care services remain under increasing pressure, please pray for all those working in the front-line. This link leads to a prayer which you can share with anyone who might find it helpful. We are also working on making this available as a card which you can send as a gesture of support. As we pray, we should also continue to do all we can as responsible citizens to avoid the spread of the virus and adding further pressure to our vital services.

We commit to our prayers those within our communities whose lives have been lost, whose health has been harmed or who mourn the impact of this pandemic on those they love. As we do so, we recognise the vital contribution being made by keyworkers across a whole range of sectors.

Many who regularly attend and comprise our churches are working in these key professions. They share stories of immense commitment, fortitude and genuine hope, but also bear testimony to the human cost of maintaining these vital services. Many are working long hours under constantly changing circumstances and are often exposed to the threat of infection while also seeing colleagues becoming ill. ... more
