Community & Mission

At Pier Avenue Baptist Church, we believe that Gospel brings personal transformation and transforms our communities too.  As an expression of that we are engaged in a number of community projects to which we welcome everybody, whether you have a faith or not. 

Tiny Treasurers

A parent / carer and toddler group.  Runs on a Monday morning from 9:30 – 11:30.  A great place to make new friends.  Craft, singing, games and fun for your Tiny Treasure!

Tuesday & Saturday Welcome

The coffee lounge at the front of the Church is open from 9:30 – 12 on Tuesday and Saturday mornings, why not pop in and enjoy a cuppa a cake and a chat?  From 12pm – 3pm on Tuesday, we serve soup and a roll.

The Enfold Project

The Enfold project operates on a Thursday morning from the Welcome Centre at the back of the Church.  This project was set up in 2012 to support the homeless and vulnerably housed of our community. 

Alongside a cooked breakfast, there is housing support and help available from different agencies.  Some of our visitors welcome the opportunity of a shower and a freshen up using our facilities.

The Shed Project

We are currently building a community shed on land at the back of the Welcome Centre.  The community shed will serve as a facility for people to engage with crafts, repair work and practical projects that will share skills and knowledge for those who may feel isolated.
