About Us

Welcome to Beacon Community – A Baptist Church! Our church has been a part of our city for over 150 years (historically, we were called “Ipswich Baptist Church”). That’s why we like to think of ourselves as a young church with a long history. But the “Church” is not a place or a building, and it’s not even primarily programmes, ministries or events. It’s us – you and me, as believers in Jesus and part of God’s family, engaging with our community and making disciples. That’s what we’re all about, and we are excited about the direction God is taking us into the future. During the week, we are God’s people “scattered” as we go about our daily lives, but on Sundays, we are the people “gathered” and you can find us here at 9:00am and 6:00pm. Come and join us, as together we worship and learn more about the God who loves us all so very much.
