What experiences do Baptist Ministers have of retirement?

This report brings together the analysis of 53 responses to a detailed questionnaire and 17 extensive face-to-face interviews.
Issues explored include experience of ministry, transition to retirement, housing, finance, health, friendships, family and ministry in retirement. Ministers answered openly questions about their experiences of relationships with the local church, with other ministers, with their Association and with the Baptist Union of Great Britain.
The report discusses whether more could be done to support our retired “heroes of faith” and at the same time whether their wisdom and experience could be used more widely in our churches and Associations.

Rev Dr Paul Beasley-Murray is now enjoying retirement after more than 43 years in Baptist ministry in long pastorates in Altrincham and Chelmsford. He also served as a short-term missionary in the Congo and as Principal of Spurgeon’s College.
Published in 2018 by The College of Baptist Ministers.
