This year’s YBA Assembly takes place at New North Road Baptist Church, Huddersfield, HD1 5JU.  THe keynote speaker is Rev Ken Benjamin, the new President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. His theme is: “Where do we grow from here? Changing church culture one degree at a time.”


There will be three seminars, with each taking place twice

Growing Whole-Life Disciples: (Ken Benjamin)
BUGB President Ken will seek to share some of his extensive experience as a church pastor, teacher and leader. He will undoubtedly be both practical and inspirational.

Growing in Compassion (Mary Taylor)
Regional Minister, Mary, will give us an understanding of ‘Sanctuary Church’ in particular and how we might grow in compassionate engagement with others beyond the church more generally.

Growing Visionary Leadership (Clive Burnard)
Our recently-appointed ‘Regional Minister for Transition and Transformation’, Clive, will share some of the thinking from his doctoral research findings (about Transformational Servant Leadership in a Baptist Context), by drawing on his experience of training, mentoring and developing leaders and teams around the world.

Food & Drink: Tea/coffee will be available on arrival and during lunch. Please bring a packed lunch.
