Welcome to Menai Baptist Church
Sunday, February 22, 2015
Menai Baptist Church has one mission: to help people discover the life of freedom Jesus offers through his life, death, and resurrection. It is a life that is lived with God at the centre in service to people and the world. It is a life lived in community with other followers of Jesus no matter their background, age, race, or status. We invite you to join us.
We meet each Sunday at 9.30am for a family service and 6.30pm for night church. Both are held in the Inaburra School Media Centre. Feel free to browse the site for information on our other programs. Why not listen to one of our messages online - see below.
If you have any questions or cannot find the information you need on this site, please contact the church office by phone or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pastor: Rev. Neil Dawson
Born and bred in the Sutherland Shire, Neil completed a Bachelor of Science in Zoology at the University of NSW in 1983 and after a number of years in the research field felt called by God to serve the community through the local church. He completed studies in theology and ministry at Morling College in Sydney and served as Youth Pastor at Gymea Baptist Church from 1990, including running a house for disadvantaged youth.
In 1996 he and his family moved to the Hornsby Shire to join the pastoral team at Thornleigh Community Baptist Church, a large family-based regional church and from 2000-2010 Neil served as Senior Pastor at TCBC. During 2011-2012 he served as Interim Senior Pastor at Springwood Baptist Church during a season of transition for both himself and the church. Neil joined Menai Baptist Church in 2013 as Associate Pastor, overseeing pastoral care, connect groups, and ensuring people are fully integrated and engaged in the life of the church.
He has a passion for equipping people to be missional agents of God, helping develop healthy communities of faith in the local church, and upholding the cause of the disadvantaged and marginalised. His interests include spending time in the bush, digital photography, relaxing over good coffee, watching movies, attempting golf and trying to reclaim his youth riding dirt bikes.
