BBC to air Grace Baptist Mission anniversary service

A service to commemorate 150 years of Grace Baptist Mission (GBM) will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 this Sunday.

Radio 4′s Sunday Worship programme, which will go out at 8.10 am, will feature GBM’s “Grace to the Nations” service from Solihull.

Speaking at the Thanksgiving day will be preacher Don Carson. Dr Carson is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois.


GBM works to help churches support their missionaries across four continents. It began in a chapel in Bloomsbury in 1861.

The service is part of a Thanksgiving day held by GBM this Saturday to thank God for the past 150 years and to consider current challenges.

The GBM meeting begins at 11am at Renewal Conference Centre, Lode Lane, Solihull, B91 2JR.
