We believe that justice concerns belong at the heart of our faith, and so we are seeking to ensure that the life and structures of our Union reflect our commitment to these issues, and that we work together to build inclusive communities. At Baptist Union Council in November 2020, Council members approved six new measures seeking to embed justice concerns at the heart of our movement
; and in our Spring 2021 Baptists Together
magazine, Simon Oxley wrote that seeking and doing justice is an essential part of who we are as Baptists
The work on equality and diversity issues has grown steadily and significantly, and we have three National Justice Hubs
that help us carry forward our commitments in these areas.
We are also developing Local Justice Hubs
made up of volunteers with a passion for justice in the areas of disability, gender, race, social and other concerns. These hubs will aim to encourage and challenge churches, Partnerships and Associations to create and/or sustain just cultures and inspire them to become all-inclusive Spirit-led communities.
