Bayside Community Church began in 2000 to serve the growing population in the suburbs around the Sydney Olympic site. We wanted to be a fresh, relevant expression of the Christian faith, based on the teaching of Jesus.
It started in a lounge room in Liberty Grove with 3 families, moved to Newington Community Centre and then to Concord West Public School as our congregation grew.
Our second congregation called “breathe” began in the Gloria Jeans cafe at North Strathfield in 2006. A couple of years later it was replanted into the Waterfront estate at Wentworth Point.
In 2009 we were given the church building in Arthur Street where Strathfield-Homebush Baptist Church met until it closed down. We now call it the Arthur St Centre. We’re privileged to continue their legacy of ministry into the Homebush/Flemington district. Our Crosseyed Youth group meets at the Arthur St Centre on a Friday night and it’s also the Bayside office.
Bayside Community Church is part of NSW & ACT Baptist Churches.
We exist to love God and love people, encouraging everyone to grow into passionately committed followers of Jesus
