The Southern Counties Baptist Association takes in 13 counties and 174 churches stretching from Chipping Campden and Bidford on Avon, though to Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight, Weymouth, Dorchester and Guernsey and much of what is in-between.
Chris’s tour of Southern Counties Baptist Association from 12th – 16th July gives us a great chance to make the most of opportunities raised by the Olympics, and in particular the Torch Relay which coincides with his tour. His involvement will include practical evangelism equipping at Bicester, Crowthorne, Bournemouth and Oxford. He will be part of a number of creative faith-sharing opportunities with a children’s club and also Cafe Church near Havant.
The Isle of Wight churches will be making the most of the Torch Relay and Olympic connection on Sunday including a ‘meet-an-Olympiad’ event. On the Sunday evening there will be a Big Hearted youth-oriented celebration at Woodley (nr Reading) Baptist Church.
