Together in Ministry

We are a self-governing fellowship of autonomous Baptist churches sharing together in ministry

How we can help you or your church


We believe that God’s plan for this world is in and through the local church.  Find a good church close to you


We put you side by side with other like minded churches and pastors


We give help to churches, helping them find a good pastor or helping a pastor find a good church.  And when we don’t know, we’ll try find out who does

Church Planting

The goal of a church is to plant churches. We offer help with expertise, partners, compliance and financial assistance

Youth Ministry

We help you reach young people by connecting you into a network of youth leaders who come alongside because youth ministry is tough

Conflict Resolution

Every church at one time or another will face a crisis; a leadership conflict situation, a membership / leadership impasse, a moral failure of a pastor – and when that happens, its helpful to have an independent third party to help

Deacon & Elder Training

Many Baptist churches struggle with implementing a Biblical expression of Elders and Deacons co-operating together .  We help churches put a biblical leadership structure in place.


We keep an electronic library of first class resource material for churches, pastors, Bible study groups, fraternals and church members because finding the right thing can be hard.  
Let us know if you can’t find what you’re looking for, and we’ll try and find it for you


We’ve already done the work of finding the right people with the right heart, in specific fields.  Check out our partner organisations here
