It is with sadness that we announce that Connexion, the National network of people married to Baptist Ministers, is closing. This is due to several reasons:
- The low numbers of new members joining. This is due to previously held stereotypes and unsuccessful marketing efforts. We were only reaching 10% of people eligible to become members.
- The numbers attending our weekends away had reached a critically low number, thus making them financially unviable.
- With the advance in social media and the changing ways people relate to one another, the support that Connexion has offered is seen as superfluous.
- The Executive Committee had served the members for many years, and needed to lay down the work.
Connexion will be winding down over the next few months and will close completely on 4 May 2018.
No subscriptions are due.
It is hoped that some form of support group will emerge and if it does before this website is taken down, we will signpost to it.
