Who Are We?

Founded in 1958, George Town Baptist Church is part of the Baptist Union of Tasmania. Tasmanian Baptists are linked with the Baptist Union of Australia and the Baptist World Alliance.

Our main objectives are to provide a place for Christians of like precious faith to congregate, fellowship, and through worship, preaching, teaching experience the spiritual growth known as Discipleship. Using the resources both spiritual and natural we endeavour to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are in need, and to help as we are able to relieve suffering and provide comfort to those who are doing it tough. Through the years, we have endeavoured to maintain a positive relationships with other churches in George Town, which has resulted in our sharing in projects together and even in joint worship services. You will find a warm welcome and friendly people as well as the presence of the Lord when you come to George Town Baptist Church.
