Progress at City Baptist (Launceston)
City have Signed to Sell
The progress at City Baptist is monumental! They signed a contract to sell the property in early September. There will be an eight-to-twelve month period of settlement.
The leadership is finalising the criteria needed for a new property and the market is being closely followed.
Anthea Maynard and Jenna Blackwell meet weekly with Jeff McKinnon to ‘dream’ and pray what the Makeover of City could potentially entail as we seek to be an intergenerational faith community culturally appropriate for young adults.
The church and the city were rocked by the tragic accidental death of street person who lived on our property.
150 people attended Daniel Tommerup’s memorial service at City Baptist. Street chaplain, Stephen Avery (pictured) continues to play a crucial role amongst some of the most vulnerable people in Launceston.
Kay Hunter is heading up an attempt to increase desperately needed accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic violence.
A slideshow is shown, below, on the development of extensive vegetable gardens by City Baptist Church, Launceston, since 2018.
These gardens are primarily for the Hazara people, Muslim refugees originally from Afghanistan.
This project is only possible because of volunteers from the church, coordinated by Sally Staley; a setting-up grant from Baptcare; and in partnership with the Worldview Centre at St Leonards.
