    Better World Gifts

    Baptist World Aid

    Are you still looking for Christmas gifts for colleagues, family and friends? It isn’t too late to add something extra special which has the bonus of assisting others overseas.

    There are Kids Gifts, Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, Stocking Stuffers and more.

    These gifts are both physical products to give, and for those who have everything, gifts for others overseas which you give on their behalf. (A suitable card is supplied for your friend, colleague or family member.)

    This is a great opportunity to give to others in need at Christmas. Maybe you can kill two birds with one stone!

    Check the gifts out Baptist World Aid’s Better World Gifts.

    Is tehre room for Jesus/ sermon series at Hobart Baptist Dec 2023

    December is often referred to as ‘the silly season’. It’s a time when our lives become very full with finishing work projects, completing courses, planning family events and buying Christmas gifts for our loved ones.

    But in all of the business, have we made December so full that there’s no longer any room for Jesus in Christmas?

    Baptist Churches of South Australia and Northern Territory

    Historic decision forming the future for SA and NT Baptists

    Baptist Churches SA and NT logo

    The Baptist Churches of South Australia has amalgamated with the Baptist Union of Northern Territory.

    The legal mechanisms for this were:

    – A Baptist Union of Northern Territory Assembly decision on 16 September 2023 to wind up.
    – Followed by a Baptist Churches of South Australia Assembly decision on 18 November 2023 to adopt changes to the Constitution and become Baptist Churches of South Australia and Northern Territory Incorporated (BCSANT).

    This was a great day of celebration and has been warmly received across our churches.
