Church Survey

We’ve put together a short survey to get a better understanding of how things are perceived in the life of our church. If you are currently involved in Kew Baptist Church, please take a moment to fill it out! It is anonymous and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. It would be very helpful to have your responses!


Coming Events @ KBC

  • Quarterly Church Gathering, 30 August: One of the really great things about being a Baptist church is that we value participation and inclusion from everyone in the church on what we believe God is saying to us and where God is leading us. On Sunday 30 August, the 10am service will be held in the hall, with our worship, prayer and sharing to flow into our Gathering. We will finish by 12:30pm. Our Vietnamese congregation is catering for us and also seeking to raise money for their Vietnam mission trip in Jan 2016. Please plan to be there!
  • Captured: Art & Photography Exhibition: Saturday 5 September, 12-4pm in the hall. Our Vietnamese congregation is hosting this event as a fundraiser. The purpose is to raise funds for ‘With A Mission’, which will be used to build houses in Vietnam. Artworks will be for sale and we are asking people to consider a financial donation. Come anytime and stay as long as you like! Food and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
  • Equip: Discipleship, Mentoring & Leadership: Thursday 10 September, 7:30pm in the hall. We welcome back Peter Corney for the third session in our series of leadership training nights, with the aim of encouraging and equipping people in the church to be better leaders and followers of Christ by being mentored and taught by mature and wise Christian leaders. $5 donation invited.
