What We Do

What we do

The foundations of the RBMHS began over forty years, due to concerns about housing for ministers in retirement. At this time many ministers had no prospects of being able to purchase their own homes in retirement.

The purpose of the Society is to provide housing for retired ministers and their spouses who are unable to secure such from their own resources. The Society considers applications from ministers whose names are on the Accredited Lists of the Baptist Union and whose service has been for a period of not normally less than fifteen years, and from unaccredited minsters who have served acceptably in BU churches for a period not normally less than eighteen years. The rules of the Society mean missionaries who have served the Baptist Missionary Society can also qualify as tenants. There is however sufficient flexibility built into the rules to permit the Management Committee to exercise discretion for exceptional cases. 

RBMHS now owns over 250 properties on England, Scotland and Wales, homes where minsters and/ or their spouses can live in secure retirement, for which they pay only a modest rent.


“The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad Psalm 126:3

‘We wondered where we would reside on retirement. RBMHS came to our rescue and provided us with a beautiful bungalow in a delightful setting, surrounded by kind and friendly neighbours. What more can we ask? We are deeply grateful to the Society and pray God’s richest blessing upon their every effort in the Master’s service. Well may we sing:-‘Praise God from whom all blessing flow.’
