The Regional Team are seeking to support churches and ministers in webnet in practical ways and through prayer as we face these challenging times together.
We strongly urge everyone to monitor the advice from the Government regarding coronavirus.
You can find up-to-date information about which place on the roadmap we are currently on on the Gov.uk website.
You’ll find lots of information and guidance about the implications of this on the Baptists Together Essential Guidance page, which is regularly updated.
REGIONAL TEAM SUPPORT
We want to support ministers and churches as well as possible during these uncertain times. We intend to keep in regular contact directly, through electronic communications and social media.
As you begin to work out what it means to see restrictions easing while case numbers rise, you may find a conversation with one of our Regional Ministers helpful. Get in touch if that’s the case.

WEBNET EVENTS AND MEETINGS
As Government restrictions are eased some Webnet meetings and events will continue to take place via Zoom. If you’ve booked into an event, we will let you know whether it is via Zoom or in person. In person events will continue to see some precautions being taken, we will let you know about these when you book in for an in person event with us, or please ask if you need to know beforehand.
If you have a pastoral meeting scheduled with a member of our regional team, we will endeavour to hold this in person, do let us know if you would prefer Zoom.
RESOURCES FOR CHURCHES
Please head over to our dedicated page GATHERED.SCATTERED.DEVOTED for ideas and resources that may be helpful as we continue to serve one another and especially those who are vulnerable or anxious at this time.
SHARING IDEAS AND RESOURCES
It would be great to continue to share resources and stories. We have a page for this which you can see here. If there is a way you are responding that might inform and inspire others, please let us know so that we can share it. We encourage you to use our Facebook page for this purpose too.
Please do contact any member of the regional team if you feel we could be of support in any way and be assured that we will be praying for you and for your communities.
