No Assembly in 2020 – but something new

Due to the uncertainties around lockdown arrangements, it has not been possible to plan for our usual Assembly this year. Instead we are holding an innovative online event called Canopy.

The Trustee Board have agreed that the AGM of the Baptist Union of Scotland will be postponed until early in 2021 when it is hoped we will be able to meet in the same room. So Canopy will not include a business meeting, though there will be plenty of news and stories from churches around the country and from our National Team. And we will of course give time to recognising and praying for ministers who are newly accredited or recently retired.

The appointment of members of Council and non-executive directors will be postponed until the AGM is held.
