Incarnational Living

After 25 years of urban mission in Melbourne and Bangkok, Ash Barker with wife Anji and son Aiden are now immersed in the life of Winson Green, Birmingham, where they have founded and lead Newbigin House. Ash was the founding director of Urban Neighbours of Hope, and is the current director of Micah Global’s International Society for Urban Mission. Ash recently visited Bristol Baptist College and led a session where he reflected on the questions: what have you learned about the nature of incarnational missional communities through your time in Bangkok? How might these insights both shape and challenge our approach to mission in a city like Bristol? Have a look at some of the highlights in the video below.

Upcoming Event – Whitley Lecture 2017


Dan Taylor was a leading eighteenth-century evangelical General Baptist minister who was founder of the New Connexion of General Baptists. This lecture provides new light on his theology and asks questions about the origins of evangelicalism and the way it was shaped by the values of the Enlightenment. Taylor was an innovator, a thinker and a pioneer, and worth our attention when contemplating the missional challenges of the 21st century.

Led by Rev Dr Richard T. Pollard – Minister & Team Leader, Fishponds Baptist Church, Bristol

Held at Bristol Baptist College on 7th February 2017 at 7.30pm, with light refreshments from 7pm.
