BU Assembly – Service for All – catch up or watch again as a former MBC member becomes President of the Baptist Union

16 May 2021

This morning in place of our usual Church at Home playlist we joined with over 5,000 other worshippers for the Baptist Union Assembly’s online Service for All. The Assembly began last Thursday evening and over the course of the last few days it has played host to a whole raft of activities and events. 

Throughout, the gathering’s keynote speaker has been American evangelist, activist and author Shane Claiborne (above) who today delivered a powerful and inspirational message based around the theme of “Heal our hearts – Heal our street – Heal our world.”

However, one very special moment for many of MBC’s long serving members must have been when Geoff Colmer (top row right in the pic above) was inducted as the Baptist Union’s 2021/22 President. Geoff began his Christian journey here at MBC and is remembered fondly by many people.

With musical contributions from choirs and bands from as far apart as East Lancashire and Uganda, bible stories, prayer and a moving appeal on behalf of BMS World Mission for help funding Covid-19 support the Service really did reach out across the whole world. 

You can catch up with this morning’s Service, and find the links to the funding appeal by clicking on this link HERE or if you would like to follow any of the Assembly’s other features simply visit
