Dear Pastors, Church Secretaries and Administrators,
Why do we have Baptist Assemblies?
Our constitution reminds us that the overall purpose of an assembly is for gathering churches within the association to “worship and discern the Lord’s leading in its overall direction”. It is a place to reflect on what God is doing in our midst, connect with others in our movement and catch a glimpse of how Jesus is leading us in our collective ministry in this world.
What will be happening at this Assembly?
The focus of this assembly will be to celebrate 150 years of the Baptist Churches in NSW & ACT. More than that it will be an opportunity to look to the future, both collectively and individually, and to celebrate how God is at work in our movement.
The assembly will also ask for your discernment and affirmation of God’s leading for several elected positions and keep you up-to-date with important activities.
During the evening the following matters will also be put to the vote:
- Three (3) members of the Assembly Council
- Four (4) members of the Morling College Council
- Three (3) members of the Baptist Churches of NSW Property Trust
- The 2018 Association Budget
- Approve a number of persons proceeding to be accredited Ministers
- Approve updates of the Accreditation Guidelines, the Code of
- Ethics & Conduct & the Procedures of Handling Allegations.
Details of all of these, an agenda and logistics for the evening, such as parking and dinner arrangements, will be placed here.
