A Day for Baptist ChaplainsA Day for Baptist Chaplains

Monday 24th January 2022


BUGB are delighted to have the chance to connect together as many as possible of the 200 Baptist chaplains. A recent survey among accredited ministers in chaplaincy highlighted a desire for a national day, so here it is - albeit in an online format on this occasion. There are three sessions - morning, afternoon and evening - each lasting one hour and three quarters. We hope you will be both keen and able to come to all of them, but realise that work commitments and rotas might make this difficult, so you can register for each session separately.

In the morning, 10:00 to 11:45 - there will be an opportunity to listen to the stories of chaplains from different sectors and regions and a chance to meet, talk with and encourage a small group of fellow chaplains.

In the afternoon, 14:00 to 15:45 - the focus will be on an interactive webinar with the title 'Witnessing to Christ as chaplains".

In the evening, 19:00 to 20:45 - Rosa Hunt, Baptist minister and co-principal of Cardiff Baptist College, will be speaking about 'Desire and Disorientation'. Singer-songwriter Gareth David-Jones will be providing some music and talking about his songwriting.

Throughout the day, BU President Geoff Colmer will be on hand to lead some reflections as he continues to encourage all of Baptists Together to be 'attentive to the rhythms of grace.

The event is free.
