The next vice-president of the Baptist Union of Great Britain (BUGB) has been named as Revd. Kingsley Appiagyei – who will make history by becoming the Union’s first black male president in May 2009. The Ghanaian was the sole nomination, and was voted to the honorary position in a postal ballot. Mr Appiagyei, who studied at Spurgeon’s College, formed Trinity Baptist Church in South Norwood which, with more than 2,000 members, is now the second largest church in the Union. The largest is Calvary Charismatic Baptist Church in Plaistow, East London, which is one of Mr Appiagyei’s church plants.

What a fantasic opportunity God has given Mr Appiagyei at such a time as this. This is unprecidented history in the making.

God will lead him in a powerful and mighty way. I cannot wait.
I have visited his church, and also the branch in plaistow. Not wanting to sound competitive, Trinity Baptist Church pastord by Mr Appiagyei, is by far bigger than Calvary Charasmnatic Baptist church in Plaistow. Let us not compete with congregation sizes, but I feel it is only respectful that we honour Mr Appiagyei's church as the largest in the baptist union. (A correction to the misleading blog above)
