External Events and News

At our offices, we often get to hear of events, news or resources which, although not Baptist in origin or emphasis, may be of interest to those in our churches. We hope to include information on some of these in this section of our website.

“Deep Impact” Conference : 17th to 19th January 2014
The Working with Children in the Church Community Core Group (W2C4 Group) will once again be contributing a “Children’s Stream” to the “Deep Impact” Residential Conference in Aviemore in January.   As in the last two years the Group is able to offer a limited number of grants to assist people to attend the Conference if their own congregations are not willing to meet any or all of the cost of attendance.  This year the grants will be of £100.
Bookings for the Conference will open in September and a reduced “Early Birdrate rate” fee will be charged until 15th October.  If congregations are to take advantage of both the “Early Bird” fees and the bursaries available from the W2C4 Group they will need to be making decisions about attendance soon.  With this in mind the W2C4 Group would be grateful if you would draw the Conference and the availablity of the grants to the attention of the congregations of your Church as quickly as possible.
