Baptist Support Centre

The staff in our national support centre are committed to providing resources and assistance to our Baptist faith communities as we collaborate on gospel renewal to people and places.

Particular areas where we can give advice and support include: 

  • engagement and employment of pastoral staff and administration staff, 
  • property, 
  • accounting and administration, 
  • statutory compliance and
  • insurance and legal.

We have a small team, and certainly don’t have all the answers, but we can certainly direct you to advisors who do have answers. You will find the support centre staff directory on the intranet (see below).

The support centre is also the base for our National Leader and their team who offer leadership in the areas of operations and finance, leadership co-ordination, strategic projects, communication, and social impact.

Intranet

We have a broad range of resources available to leaders of our faith communities which can be accessed via our intranet.  The intranet includes shared resources relating to:
