George Floyd - "...I can't breathe"

The inhumane and merciless brutality demonstrated towards George Floyd at the end of May 2020 was an appalling act of injustice.  Baptists Together hold a common value; that we are a Movement which shares a hunger for God’s coming Kingdom and seeks to confront evil, injustice and hypocrisy and challenges worldly attitudes to power, wealth, status and security both within and beyond our Union.

We share our responses,  and prayers below:
