"As the Father sent me, I am sending you." These words contain our purpose as a community of faith: to join in the mission Jesus sends us on, enabled by the Holy Spirit. Join us as we seek to join in with the renewing work of God in our lives, our families, our neighbourhoods, and our world.

Our Story

The community of faith that would become Gymea Baptist Church began as a Sunday School that met in the house (and chicken sheds) of John and Babs Turner in 1940. Officially founded as a Baptist church in 1949, it was the founding congregation's desire to be a "light on the highway" and for more than 70 years we have sought to be faithful to that call. Our story, however, is more about God's faithfulness to us! We celebrate our past and look forward to what God is inviting us to do in the here and now.
