The Order for Baptist Ministry Convocation 2018
November 14-15, 2018
Maybury Hill, Woking, Surrey, GU22 8AB
A Convocation is a group of people formally assembled for a special purpose. The Convocation of the Order for Baptist Ministry takes place annually. The main PURPOSE of the Convocation is to offer a place to assemble and share in fellowship, to engage in the Daily Office of the Order, to REFLECT ON the Dream, to make Vows and to discuss business. Attendance at the Convocation is part of what it means to be in membership with the Order.
The Convocation commences with coffee at 11am on Wednesday 14 November and closes with tea on Thursday 15 November. More details, including a booking form, will be posted here after Easter.
While we recognise the value of retreat and conference, convocation has its own distinct purpose as the time and space where we gather together before God to pray, to worship, to listen, to be.
The spirituality of OBM emerges out of the Baptist story but finds resonance in a variety of Christian traditions.
