• About us

    Sandy Bay Baptist Church (SBBC) is located in Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania (Australia). We could be broadly described as a conservative, evangelical, missions-minded church.

    History

    SBBC commenced worship at the current location in 1921, so 2011 marked our 90th anniversary! The church was formally constituted in 1928.

    People

    The individuals who make up SBBC inherently determine the 'character' of the church. Our congregation includes full-time University-age students, working families, professionals, and retirees. Those at SBBC are also at different points in their spiritual lives - from retired missionaries who have been Christians for more than 50 years, to those who are comparatively young Christians.

    We are not just a collection of individuals, but aim to be a 'church family' that can rejoice with and support one another in good & bad times, and hold each other spiritually accountable. This means we have times of fellowship where we get to know one another better, e.g. through church lunches or 'game nights'.

    Leadership

    Our Pastor is Phil Ninness. The Pastor provides spiritual leadership, including speaking at most Sunday worship services.

    Our deacons are David Kettlewell and Rendell Ridge. Deacons take care of the day-to-day running of the church.

    Structure & organisation

    Like most Baptist churches, SBBC is autonomous: church members elect officers and call (hire) the Pastor. SBBC is not a member of the Baptist Union of Tasmania, although we do have a good working relationship with the Union and follow a number of its policies.
