EBA Council

The Eastern Baptist Association is a family of Baptist Churches situated throughout Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge. Our fellowship together is so that we can encourage and resource one another for the work of mission, both for each church in its local context, and in things we might do together. Every Church contributes to our wider mission in their own unique way by taking part in enriching relationships, developing ministry and enabling fruitful mission in its own area.

Our vision is to see God’s kingdom grow in the East of England through healthy churches, living as wholesome communities and engaging in relevant mission.
