Panto Service

Liked the Panto? Well, the mirth and mayhem continue on Sunday with our first Panto Service. We'll kill Snow White again and get some Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut.

All that and some other weird and wonderful things, as well as worshipping God!   Why not come along?  It's suitable for all ages.

Sunday 22nd February  10-30am at MRBC Felixstowe.

If you missed both, the original Panto can still be enjoyed at:

Paul Hills' Farewell Service

It was a real EBA bean feast, with over 400 folk from all over the Association joining together at Burlington Baptist Church in Ipswich for the Farewell Service for Paul and Sue Hills.  Paul has been a Regional Minister and the Team Leader since the inception of the EBA and had been in post for 17 years.
 Apart from representatives of many churches in the Association, there were leaders from the Baptist Union, other Associations and also from other Churches and Denominations, to recognise the contribution Paul and Sue has made to the life of the Association as well as Baptist life in the UK.   In his sermon Paul also gave thanks to those ecumenical leaders here in East Anglia that he had worked with over the years as well as those in the four original county associations that merged to form the EBA.

It was a great opportunity to worship together and praise God for what has been achieved in this region since the EBA began and all the Regional Ministers that had served with Paul came to celebrate.

Some of the churches also brought symbols of how they work in their local communities.  It was quite an eclectic mix of items, which included Cambridge United's FA Trophy which they won last season!

Paul's service served as a reminder that although as a Baptist fellowship our local church is independent, we are part of the body of Christ and we are interdependent on one another, whether that be with other Baptist churches as part of an Association, or whether we work with other churches of various types within our own local community.   As an individual church, there is a limit to what we can do to extend the Kingdom of God, but together under the leading and power of the Holy Spirit, there is so much we can achieve together!
