All member and fellowship churches are invited to send delegates (physically) or to join in online (virtually) to our AGM to be held on 16 November 2020 at Eastside Community Church. You can register for either below.
At this AGM, we will be voting on the big question of whether the BNA must…
- Transition into a Regional Network of the Baptist Union, or
- Separate from the Baptist Union, or
- Continue as we are and see what happens with the Baptist Union at the Baptist Union Assembly 2021.
A guide to assist churches in making this decision is available here. To date, we have not had an update from the Baptist Union National Leadership Team and so no further clarity is available.
NOTE: In order to vote, your church will need to have their membership fees paid up. Message us here if you’re unsure if this is done.
DETAILS: Fellowship will start with a ‘Covid compliant’ dinner at 6:00pm and the meeting will begin at 7:00pm at Eastside Community Church at Cnr Primula & Garsfontein Roads, Moreleta, Pretoria or just Drive there!
