More Ways To Get Involved
At Berowra Baptist Church our women love to support each other, get together and have time to get to know each other better. This can be in the form of women’s home groups, a casual brunch on a Saturday morning, time in the Binnowee Garden, Frock Swap, Wreath making events and more.
A Ministry of Berowra Baptist Church
Berowra Baptist men get together regularly for Friday night BBQ’s, breakfast, golf days, weekend retreats, treks into the bush and small groups which offer support and friendship.

Want to really feel a part of community and doing life together? Home group is the place to find real connection, lifelong friendship and a sense of belonging. They are an integral part of church life offering spiritual, emotional and physical support through genuine connection with others.
Everyone is encouraged to find a home group that best suits them. We have mens, womens, mixed, young and older groups meeting on various evenings through the week. Every group is unique in style yet each group shares a foundation of encouraging each other in the Word of God, supporting each other in prayer and fellowshipping together with laughter.
If you would like to know more about home groups please contact the office.
Berowra Baptist Church is committed to providing professional counselling by highly trained people, we do this because we recognise that good preaching and a supportive community, as important as they are, is often just the beginning. Extra support by qualified professionals can make all the difference. Please feel free to contact us should you like further information.
Frienz Inc is a social group for seniors from various churches and includes an outing on the last Friday of the month.
Berowra is a place of abundant natural beauty, abundant wealth and abundant opportunity. For all this we thank our Father in heaven who so generously gives out of his incomparable riches. We not only thank God for blessing us so abundantly, but we desire to share our blessings with anyone who has need. Social disconnection is an increasingly problem. Family ties are not always strong, marriages do not always last and neighbours are not always there.
Our community ministry seeks to connect with people in the area who experience some kind of social disconnection. Our desire is that everyone should feel that they belong to a family. If you would like to be involved in the community ministry, please see Les Woods or Alan Anderson.
