At Waverley Baptist, we take the Great Commission seriously. 15% of our general offering is given to ministries outside our local sphere of ministry. In addition, special offerings for wider ministry are taken up in our Crossover Australia Good Friday Appeal, our Global InterAction May Appeal, and Baptist World Aid Christmas Appeal.
Our Global policy is to give preference to ministries to 'Unreached' peoples, and we are moving to grow our efforts to those who have little or no opportunity to understand the love Jesus has for them.
From our General Offering the following ministries are supported:
Schools in Australia
Hope in the life of every child
Partnering with a local school, Kids Hope mentors meet for one hour with one vulnerable child, providing social, emotional and behavioral development to children in need through one-on-one mentoring.
