Sunday services cancelled!

*Please note that in view of our Baptist Union advice and the worsening COVID 19 situation we have decided, with heavy hearts, to cancel all services and events.

Please pass on this news to anyone you know. Our weekly services will continue to be posted on YouTube at ‘PRBC 2020’.

We also have a area for special updates where you will find the other messages, including from The Baptist Union of Great Britain.

Black History Month (BHM) was first launched in the USA in February 1970. However, the precursor to BHM called ‘Negro History Week’ started in February 1926 thanks to the inspiration of Carter G Woodson (known by many as the ‘Father of Black History’.

BHM started in the UK in October 1987. In this month people in the UK annually recognise, share and celebrated African and Caribbean history and culture. It’s a time also to consider the significant contributions made by black people to world development. This year we at Perry Rise Baptist Church (PRBC) have been sharing some aspects of Black history during each of the weekly services in October. The fellowship was able to experience slide shows and presentations about the different aspects.

Normally PRBC would have a BHM display in the entrance foyer for everyone to explore but Covid 19 has made that inappropriate this year. Not wanting to miss the opportunity to explore black history at our own leisure, we have decided to create a display on our website. This display is based on the materials used in the presentations and slide slows which were used during the October services and we trust that you will find it informative and helpful.
