Baptist Times

The Baptist Times is Britain's dedicated Baptist news and comment website. It launched in spring 2012, and is the successor to the denominational newspaper of the same name, which had been produced weekly since 1855 until its closure in 2011.

The Baptist Times seeks to help local churches and Christians fulfil mission by informing, resourcing, inspiring and connecting the denomination in all its diversity.

The Baptist Times is part of the Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB), a network of more than 2,000 churches and 140,000 members. It draws on stories from those churches and attempts to reflect the thinking within them.

It also reports on major events in the wider Christian Church and provides news and analysis from across the world, drawing on our network of contacts in the Baptist World Alliance and the European Baptist Federation.

Learning to listen 

The gift of a listening ear communicates love and grace, qualities found abundantly in Jesus. In this age where social media has diminished our communication skills, perhaps there is an even greater need to listen well, writes Phil Slaney in the Baptist Times
