Pastoral Vacancies

Epping Baptist Church has been witnessing to God’s love for people within Epping for almost 90 years. The area of Epping has been identified by NSW Government as a priority precinct where further dwellings are required to cater for more than 10,000 new residents in the next 10 years. With many people from non-English speaking backgrounds moving into Epping and surrounding suburbs, the area has experienced many changes. The church is currently looking to fill 2 pastoral vacancies.
