Election for the Baptists Together President 2022-23
The election survey is now closed. Votes will be counted and the result will be announced in due course.
Further to our call for nominations for the position of Baptists Together President in 2022-23, and following the stipulations of our constitution, we have received four nominations and these are now offered for election.
We hope that all our churches will be keen to engage with this important decision. Please do prayerfully consider which candidate you believe should serve our Union as President. The question for discernment is 'Who is God calling to be the President of our Union in the coming season?

To help the discernment process, each candidate has provided a short profile with information about the theme and focus they would wish to explore should they be successful, along with a video to introduce themselves.
Faith and Society Team Leader, Diane Watts, has also interviewed each candidate about about challenges, hopes and mission.
We will be discerning using an electronic vote.
