The Public Engagement Group wants to see churches flourishing, society flourishing and God glorified as together we bear witness to the grace of Jesus in our society. The role of the group is to enable, mobilise and coordinate the Association’s engagement with local communities and broader state and national issues. We serve the Association (including churches, affiliated bodies and the ministry centre team) by ensuring that our engagement in communities and broader public issues serves our purpose of advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word, deed and sign, through interdependent partnerships.

Baptists have a fundamental commitment to standing alongside those who are poor and marginalised in our communities. This commitment has been formed by both the Biblical story and the history of the Baptist Movement. We seek to equip churches to act in ways that simultaneously empower the weak, build up the body of Christ, and help people encounter Jesus.
