We are part of the Baptist Union, and regularly meet with other Baptist Churches on the Island.
The Island Baptist Fellowship gathered in Newport in October to enjoy meeting together, hearing what other churches are doing, and enjoy tea and delicious cakes. The daughter of Susan Gardner, Ruth, updated us on her work in Chile with Latin Link. Jenny Yates told us about her visit to Israel and of how impressed she was with the ministry of the messianic Jewish community she had met there. They work across racial barriers with both Jews and Arabs, and their work with drug addicts has even attracted the interest and support of the wife of the Prime Minister.
