Belair Baptist
Who are we? 

"I have come that they may have life, and life to the full"  - Jesus

John 14:6


Belair Baptist Church is a faith community based in Adamstown, Newcastle. We believe that God loves all people, and is inviting everyone to be transformed by embracing the good news of Jesus death and resurrection. We gather on sunday mornings and throughout the week to serve, encourage and spur one another on to love and good deeds. 

All sorts of people are part of our community! No matter who you are, you will find a friend. Feel free to tune in online, visit us on sunday mornings or get in contact via email. 

Hope to see you soon
