Baptist Churches of NSW & ACT

Public Engagement Group

As Baptists we want to see churches flourishing, society flourishing and God glorified as together we bear witness to the grace of Jesus in our society. The role of The Public Engagement Group is to enable, mobilise and coordinate the Association’s engagement with local communities and broader state and national issues. We serve the Association (including churches, affiliated bodies and the ministry centre team) by ensuring that our engagement in communities and broader public issues serves our purpose of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word, deed and sign, through interdependent partnerships.

The Public Engagement Group would like to acknowledge the support and expertise of BaptistCare NSW & ACT in the development of this site.
