Today is the last edition of News & Prayer for 2020. You will see us again in the new year from Sunday 31 January. Have a safe and wonderful time over the summer.


Prayer for Tasmanian Baptist Churches at Christmas

Pray for all our churches this Christmas and holiday season.

Tasmanian Baptists are celebrating 180 years of witness in Launceston this Christmas season. The York Street Baptist Chapel was formed as a church on 22 December 1840. The Chapel building was opened 5 days later. There is a celebration being held at City Baptist at 10am on Sunday 27 December.

2021 will be the last time Jeff McKinnon leads the Understanding the Baptist Movement study intensive. Already we have six likely registrations. There are limited spaces still available. 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 if you would like to receive an information sheet: jeff@citybaptistchurch.net  More Info on the TasBaptist website HERE >>>
