Official CoronaVirus COVID 19 Statement for Broadmead Baptist Church 18 March 2020: (CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED) 

Following the latest UK Government advice on 17 March, along with the advice of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, I regret to inform you that from and including Sunday 22 March 2019, there will be no public services held in Broadmead Baptist Church. This sadly, includes Gareth and Anne’s retirement farewell which we would like to “postpone” (not cancel) until VE Day in the Summer, when we will rejoice to be back with you for proper hugs and kisses, God willing!

I am currently writing a more extensive piece on what kind of church I believe could emerge which includes live streaming, social media, practical support for the elderly and vulnerable. You will soon be able to access it on our website.
