In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Baptist union has offered clear guidance about the suspension of church gatherings, including Sunday Services.  The EMBA wholeheartedly supports this guidance and all involved in church leadership are urged to read and act on this advice as a matter of priority.  For a theological rationale for this advice, read here.   

The BU website contains key advice and important coronavirus advice and resources to help churches respond positively to the current crisis.  These are available by clicking here.

The current crisis is clearly a shock to us all and requires that we think creatively about how we do church.  It requires that we think about what is most important and reset this in fresh, simple and creative ways.  In addition to the BUGB web pages we aim to offer ideas to stimulate your own creativity on these pages.  If you develop a new approach that might help other churches, please email it to the regional team here who will be keeping these pages updated.
