Baptist World Aid Australia has been responding prayerfully, thoughtfully and respectfully to the needs of those in poverty since 1959.
Together we form the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12) and that’s why the local church in Australia has been, and continues to be, a crucial partner for Baptist World Aid. Today, we work with 38 local Christian Partners through 73 projects in 18 countries to end poverty so that all people can enjoy the fullness of life God intends.
Local churches like yours share stories of transformation from the field, take up offerings for our global neighbours and consistently bring the plight of the marginalized before God in prayer.
We want to walk alongside your church family as you respond to God’s call to love our global neighbours. We’ll work with you to create a partnership that aligns with your mission strategy and enables your church to grow in their vision, love, and generosity for the vulnerable and marginalized in our world.
When your church partners with Baptist World Aid Australia, you’re supporting best-practice local Christian organisations in countries including Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lebanon, Nepal and Uganda, as they provide resources and skills to support communities emerging from poverty. Ways your church can get involved include:
Let Baptist World Aid be how our your church gives the gift of hope each Christmas.
Pray, raise awareness and give generously towards the ongoing work in a country where Baptist World Aid Partners are working to care for the vulnerable and support sustainable change.
It takes a child to raise a village. Support Children and Youth lead and co-designed initiatives that support them as they learn more effectively at school, learn about leadership, child rights nutrition, hygiene and more in our Child and Youth Clubs.
Isaiah 1:17 calls us to ‘Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.’ Partner with us as we seek to do just that.
Whilst we wish they didn’t, disasters occur. When they do Baptist World Aid will provide aid where we are able, not just while it remains in the headlines, but for the long journey to recovery.
Our team has many years of combined experience in pastoral ministry and a shared passion for God’s heart toward people living in poverty. We’d love to meet with you, learn about your church and discuss how we can partner together in God’s work in ways that align with your church vision.
Please send one of our Church Relationship Managers a message so we can set up a time to meet, have a coffee and a chat. And together, we can work towards a world without poverty where all people enjoy God’s fullness of life.
