Gathering Disciples: Festschrift for Dr Chris Ellis

24 Mar Gathering Disciples: Festschrift for Dr Chris Ellis

On Friday 3rd March (7th Week), Regent’s Park College was delighted to launch a festschrift in honour of alumnus, The Revd Dr Christopher Ellis, former President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain (2014-15).  Dr Ellis has been a major figure in the recent history of the BUGB and this book celebrates his commitment to the enrichment of Free Church worship, especially through the art of hymn writing, which he has urged the Christian community to recover.  It contains a number of rich reflections on Dr Ellis’ hymns by members of the College community, past and present, and has been co-edited by the Chaplain, The Revd Dr Myra Blyth.
