dBay Baptist Church is located right in the middle of the Deception Bay community. As a church we wish to have a positive impact on our local community. We do this in numerous ways. For any more information on these services, or if you want to be involved; contact the church office.
KIDS HOPE AUS. is a mentoring program that helps Australian children needing additional support, and their families. Through a partnership between local churches and primary schools, KIDS HOPE AUS. works to improve opportunities for mentored children in the areas of education, self confidence and well being.
dBay Baptist sends KIDS HOPE mentors into Deception Bay State School every week. For one hour each week, a caring adult from the church mentors a child needing additional support at their school. This usually involves helping the child with homework, playing games, arts and crafts, or just spending time together.
Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a conversational English class run in the top hall every Thursday from 9:30 – 11am. It is open to the public for anyone who would like to improve their English speaking skills. From people with no English language to those who want to improve their conversational English, all are welcome.
There will be an evening course starting later in the year as well.
dBay Baptist is a strong supporter of chaplaincy in our local schools. We regularly run fundraising and awareness events to support the numerous chappies working in our four local schools, Deception Bay SHS, Deception Bay SS, Deception Bay North SS and Moreton Downs SS.
