Baptists from across the country will be travelling to Blackpool this Friday for the Baptist Assembly, the biggest Baptist event of the year.
Over 2,000 people are expected to attend the four-day gathering of the Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB) and BMS World Mission from 2 to 5 May 2008.
The Assembly theme, A hope and a future, will look at world issues including creation care. Sir John Houghton, Nobel Peace Prize winner and Co-Chair of the Scientific Assessment Working Group of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, will be interviewed and keynote speaker will be Vinoth Ramachandra, a member of the International Council of Reference of Christian environmental charity A Rocha.
A Rocha and BMS World Mission have been working in partnership with the Baptist Unions of Great Britain, Wales and Scotland on new resources on creation care for Baptist churches which will be launched at the Assembly.
