I have received today the Programme Book for the Baptist Assembly along with my 'Guest Speaker' badge (we also get a special posh lanyard to indicate that we are so important that we don't need to put a pin through our clothes).
Assembly will be a busy time, but as usual I am hoping that the best bits will occur outside of the main Programme, in the bars, coffee shops and curry houses of Brighton: not withstanding of course the following vital events in the main Assembly Programme:
Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th May: 9.15 am - 10.00 am, Arundel 2, Holiday Inn
Bible Study on Galatians 3.26-29
Please note that if you want to come to this and fear that there may not be room for everyone, you will need to book tickets for the Bible Studies from the Information Desk in advance.
Saturday 5th May: 4.00 - 5.00 pm: Hall B East, The Brighton Centre
More Light and Truth?: Biblical Interpretation in Covenantal Perspective
Sunday 6th May: 10.45 am - 12.30 pm: Main Hall
A Baptist People - United in Mission including the AGM of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, includingt he all important vote on alterations to the Constitution.
Clearly, these events are the highlights. But mention must also go to the Prism strand within the Programme, headed up by Bromley Boy, Simon Jones and others. I may well be heading to Prism from time to time myself. It will also be good to meet up with former fellow students at Reunions (although the Bristol and Northern ones are always timetabled against each other - so apologies to all friends from Bristol days that I may not get to see).
