This year we are celebrating our 95th Anniversary at Newtownards Baptist Church!
Looking back we can see how God has remained faithful and unchanging, just as He has promised to be. However, our town, our country, and our world have changed a lot in the past 95 years. Newtownards is becoming a multicultural society, and fewer and fewer people have church connections any more. Jesus is now a name that people have heard of, but know very little about. So this year, over our Anniversary weekend, we will be hosting an EQUIP Day Conference alongside our Special Anniversary Services.
EQUIP conference, is on Saturday 27th January from 10:30am-3:00pm, and will focus on “equipping the saints for works of ministry”. The subjects this year will be Christian witness in a pagan society; our witness towards other religions; and our witness towards fellow believers. If you’d like to come to the EQUIP Conference, please register here to book your place. Booking is essential as catering will be provided.
Our Speaker for the weekend is Pastor Rob Anthony. In 1989 Grace Community Church sent Rob and Vicki Anthony to serve as Bible Translators in Chad, Africa. After 13 years they moved to Marseille, France in 2003 to work in church planting and leadership training. They helped plant one church in a heavily immigrant neighborhood of Marseille and are now serving at Action Biblique Marseille. Rob serves as the Pastor and teaches classes on church leadership. Vicki leads the music ministry, women’s ministry and tutors English classes.
Our Sunday Anniversary Service will take place on Sunday 28th January from 11am and our Special Guest Service will take place at 4pm. All are welcome to these Special Services.
We will be running a complimentary crèche during each of the seminar sessions for children up to the age of 9. However this will not run over lunch when parents should supervise their children.
Booking is essential for the creche as an appropriate number of carers will be supplied ONLY for those registered in advance.
Please provide your children’s name(s) & age(s) on the booking form.
