Hands off our children!

Please sign our petition to the Prime Minister,the Rt Hon Theresa May, calling for Government to scrap the guidance stopping parental access to children’s medical records

When parents, a couple of weeks ago, started to receive letters from their doctors’ surgeries telling them they would no longer be allowed access to their child’s medical records, unless the child gave explicit permission, we thought it was maybe misinterpretation of new GDPR requirements.  It appears, however, that we were wrong, because the Government has now issued a Briefing Paper entitled Patient records and confidentiality.   As part of this, The British Medical Association (BMA) has produced guidance on confidentiality and the disclosure of health records in relation to children.

Never the same

What difference does the gospel make? What power does it possess? What happens when a community embraces Christ and allows his word to transform them? This moving short film shows the impact of the gospel upon the Sawi people of Papua New Guinea when Don Richardson’s family visits 50 years after they first preached Christ. See how the people of “Peace Child” really have made peace through the gospel.

Billy Graham tribute

Last week Billy Graham died. It is surely right to remember the life and faith of a man used of God for the conversion of so many. For all his faults in the work of evangelism, his zeal and conviction are surely a spur to us all.

The Gospel

The Gospel

Sharing the gospel message with family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours can be daunting, but if we are really well prepared and we have thought carefully about our approach it can give us much more confidence. We have put together this summary as resource to help us to that end. May the Lord encourage us all to be bold and compassionate as we make known the saving power of Christ Jesus to all who are willing to listen.

A plea from the UK

For a number of years, Prof Jim Renihan has been visiting the UK encouraging us to return to our confessional roots and build churches that are distinctively Reformed Baptist, committed to the 1689 Confession. Along with a team of men over in the States, Prof Renihan has been training young men for the ministry through the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies, based at Westminster Seminary in California. Plans are now afoot to establish a stand-alone seminary based on the 1689 Confession, and we were asked to produce a short film showing our support for the project and our need for more help on this side of the Atlantic, where the Confession was born! If you would like more information, or you are interested in hearing more about the ministry of IRBS and Prof Renihan in particular, please contact us using the contact button on the website.
