National Prayer Live

On the first Sunday evening of each month, several hundred people from our churches across Scotland join in our National Prayer Live event on Youtube. 

Microchurch Incubator

Baptist churches are seeking to grow communities that are faithful to Jesus and who desire ‘by all possible means to save some’ (1 Corinthians 9.22). Our network exists to support one another in doing this, in familiar inherited forms of church and in new innovatory expressions of church.

Microchurches are one of many innovative forms of church that are becoming part of the wider landscape. At Canopy in 2020 Brian Sanders spoke from his own experience about the potential of this simple, low-maintenance, easily-reproducible way of being church, focused on worship, community and mission.

A number of people around our network have felt God giving them a vision to develop microchurches in a variety of contexts. To support these developments we are holding two Microchurch Incubator sessions with Brian Sanders. These are for anyone who is seriously considering developing a microchurch, or who has already launched a microchurch, and would value an experienced voice and some communal encouragement in that journey.

(If you are just interested in finding out more about microchurches, try watching this seminar from Canopy 2020 or take a look at Underground Church or Microchurches by Brian Sanders.)

The Microchurch Incubator sessions will take place at 19.30 on Thursdays 4 and 18 February on Zoom. The cost to attend both is £10 per person. To book a place please use the ‘Book Now’ button to take you to the booking form.

the key to starting is to see the first iteration as experimental… It is so important to start small. (Brian Sanders, ‘Microchurches’, p93)
