We believe in the importance of connecting with one another. 

Church is not meant to be a holy club, but a place where people can come and feel welcomed. We are passionate about helping people connect with one another in a way that will encourage and uplift them in their daily lives. 

If you are looking for a place to connect with others, please consider one of the regular groups we have running in our church. 
We would love to have you join us!


KIDS CHURCH //  KINDERGARTEN - YEAR 6

CORE   //   Evening service  //  ALL AGES

What began as a Young Adults evening service has grown into a community of all ages, joining together to enjoy good coffee, and to worship God and engage with one another.
We kick off at 4pm with hot drinks and snacks while we catch up and chat before getting into worship at 4:30. One of our CORE leaders will bring a message each week that is relevant to our walk with God, complimented by teachings from our interim Pastor, Tom. 

The service is usually followed by a home cooked dinner in the church building, which is an amazing time to connect and get ready to go out into the week recharged.

Parents are so welcome to bring along their children - we are a very kid-friendly service and have a space set up for the kids as well as a great love for their interaction with us during the service. 

WHEN: Sundays, 4pm - 6pm {followed by dinner}      
WHERE: Goulburn Baptist Church {164 Bourke Street}
CONTACT: Danny Gwynn {0422 061 327}

Finding 31b.jpg

FINDING 31   //   BIBLE STUDY  //  YOUNG WOMEN

Finding 31 is our young ladies bible study, designed for mums of young children, newly married, and single ladies. However, there is no age limit on this group - if you are feeling isolated and want to connect with a group of ladies, this is a great place to start! This group grew out of the realisation that many women are feeling disconnected, especially those who are at home during the day. Together, we explore the concept of how we can find in ourselves that elusive Proverbs 31 woman - by loving God and one another. 

WHEN: Tuesdays at 10:00am
WHERE: The Soldier’s Club - Kid’s Playground
CONTACT: Sarah


QUESTION BOX   //   BIBLE STUDY  //  WOMEN OVER 18
