From our inception, BaptistCare NSW & ACT has been closely linked to local Baptist congregations through local church representatives who serve as members of our company. All Baptist churches in NSW and ACT are entitled to nominate a BaptistCare company member and in so doing, have a voice in shaping the vision and direction of the organisation. Our company members can not only have a hands-on role within BaptistCare, they also serve as a valuable communication link to local congregations. At BaptistCare we need advocates for our ministry; people who will share the BaptistCare story in their church and help us to strengthen partnerships with our family of churches.
