A special combined service involving local Baptist Churches is planned for 9.30am on Sunday 12th August, to take place at Epping Baptist Church. This service will replace our usual Sunday services on that day.
We’re gathering for 2 reasons:
First, we have the opportunity to host together, Pastor Vee, who is the General Secretary of the Asia Pacific Baptist Federation. This is a Federation that includes 60 Baptist Conventions, 55 000 Baptist Churches and over 3 million Baptists in the Asia-Pacific region. It will be good to hear something of God’s wider work in our region, and it will be particularly of interest to us, given our strong Asian constituency and connections.
Secondly, this will also provide an opportunity to gather with other local Baptist churches, which is something we don’t often do at this level. We are calling it a ‘Generations’ Celebration Service, because the churches involved will be Eastwood, Epping, Carlingford and Riverside, and you may be aware that Eastwood planted Epping, which planted Carlingford, which planted Riverside.
Make sure you don’t miss this very special occasion!
(And tell your friends so that no-one accidentally turns up at Carlingford that day!)
