I have been hugely encouraged by hearing of the life and growth of and through the Baptist churches of the Association. God specialises in changing lives and let me encourage you to have boldness in sharing the Good News and confidence in God to change lives.
In more recent years Limbrick Wood Baptist Church have been through difficult times and they were wondering what their future may hold. Last autumn they took the bold step of appointing Darren part-time to help lead them in reaching their community for Christ and this year they are celebrating their 60th anniversary. More importantly, in February they had their first baptism in 14 years and this was followed up by another baptism on Easter Day and another baptismal service is planned for May for two people.

The HEBA Board of Trustees have recently agreed five values – companionship, generosity, diversity, learning and innovation. Please check them out on this website.
The HEBA team exists to support Baptist churches in the Heart of England, to encourage and walk with them. We are still prayerfully seeking an Association Treasurer to help us do that – details here.
As we walk together may we see God move and may we celebrate together in seeing changed lives and transformed communities.
Our Association Treasurer, John Levick, has given notice of his intention to retire from this position at the HEBA Gathering/AGM in June 2016. This is a voluntary, but vitally important role in the life of the Association. Further information is on the Recruitment page here.
