Baptist Borough Deans

A network of ecumenical ‘deans’ on a Borough basis was established in 1976 and revised in 1988. The aims are to coordinate action on behalf of the churches in each London Borough, working with the local authority, on matters of mutual concern (e.g. disasters or disturbances) and to encourage co-operation generally. In Boroughs where they exist, each denomination appoints a person to represent them as its Borough Dean.

The ‘title’ dean, in the sense of a local representative, has been adopted because of its general use in the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches. Because the use of the word Dean is unusual for Baptists, it is worth emphasising that the Baptist Borough Deans have no authority within the Churches, but rather represent the local Baptist Churches in this specific and limited context.

Appointments of Baptist Borough Deans are made by the London Baptist Association after consultation with the local Baptist churches in the relevant Borough. Those appointed on behalf of Baptists are:
