The Expeditions

The purpose of a base camp is to facilitate expeditions that explore the surrounding territory. At Olton Baptist Church, we support a range of expeditions:

Our everyday
We are first and foremost explorers wherever God has put us – in our workplaces, schools, colleges, streets, clubs, pubs, among our families and our friends.

Our Explorer Groups
But sometimes it helps to get together with the explicit aim of making connections with those around us in order to share our lives with them and, as opportunity arises signpost them to Jesus. We run a number of activities, many as part of our Sunday Out initiative, where people get together to share a common interest, but always aiming to be inclusive and generous.

Our Partners
We also support through people, prayer and finance, a number of Christian mission charities and organisations that seek to build the kingdom of God locally, nationally and internationally.

Our Connections
At the heart of Baptist thinking is the freedom of each church to discern for itself to what God is leading them, but every Baptist church is also encouraged to connect with other churches and bodies for mutual support, encouragement and guidance.
