Rediscovering Anabaptism: A Heart for the Poor

Stuart Murray Williams, founder member and chair of the Anabaptist Network and director of Urban Expression, notes the resources offered by Anabaptism for reflecting on issues of peace and justice.

Judith Gardner, member of Wood Green Mennonite Church, founder member of the Anabaptist Network and local councillor, explains that the Anabaptist tradition integrates evangelism and social justice and encourages us to go beyond protesting against militarism to actively promoting peace.

Brian Haymes, Baptist minister and former principal of two Baptist colleges, gives examples of a church that is committed to serving the powerless and voiceless and traces this concern to the Anabaptist tradition.

Graham Watkins, Baptist minister in West London, says that his commitment to peace transforms the way he responds to those on the margins.
