Revd Dr Helen Paynter

Helen is Director of the Centre for the Study of Bible and Violence, and Coordinator of Theological Education at Bristol Baptist College. You can read more about her ministry and research interests


Revd Andy Percey

Andy is minister of Manvers Street Baptist Church in Bath and the Baptist chaplain at Bath University. We enjoyed Andy's input on rest and sabbath at last year's online conference so much, that we've invited him again. His book 'Infused with Life: Exploring God’s Gift of Rest in a World of Busyness – Spiritual Wisdom to Restore Work-Life Balance, Maintain Well Being, Live Life to the Full, Biblical Truths' particularly speaks of the challenge to rediscover rest, so important to all in ministry.
