Prayer for Tasmanian Baptist Churches

Pray for Coastlands Baptist in Burnie. This smaller fellowship has been struck by ill-health throughout the congregation. Our God is Lord of our struggles.  Ask God to bring his healing and protection and pray for Pastor Gwenith Alexander.

The Understanding the Baptist Movement study intensive will operate again in Tasmania in 2021 for anyone wanting to better understand the principles that lie behind the 400 year old Baptist movement. The intensive is essential for all APL and RPL pastors who have not previously studied Baptist Principles formally. It is also available to anyone interested to know more about Baptists in a post-denominational era. Cost is just $20. Contact Jeff McKinnon if you would like to receive an information sheet. jeff@citybaptistchurch.net
