Baptist Insurance Management Ltd (BIM) has been an affiliated ministry of the Baptist Association of NSW and ACT (the Association). As advised in last year’s report, BIM’s insurance operations were transferred to the Association from 1 October 2019 to meet insurance requirements for our national insurance body, Baptist Insurance Services Ltd (BIS). As such, renewals for 2020 onwards are now through the Association. All claims are now processed directly by BIS, the National Insurance Scheme. 

Considering this, a review of the future of BIM was conducted and the decision was made to close the company as it was no longer operating. The company therefore closed in late 2020. 

Please be assured that all church insurance needs will continue to be met by BIS. Services offered by BIS include:  

  • Handling claims 
  • Providing advice 
  • Delivering risk management workshops, education and resources 
  • Conducting insurance information sessions for all Association members 
  • Visiting clients to assist in understanding insurance and risk management 
  • Providing online Work Health and Safety Training 

If you have any insurance questions, please do not hesitate to contact the NSW & ACT Insurance Manager, Tim Williams, on 02 9868 9213, 0403 615 033 or
