Welcome to The Heights Church
In 2016 Hornsby Heights Baptist Church changed its name to The Heights Church
The Heights Church is a member of NSW and ACT Association of Baptist Churches
50 Years of Hornsby Heights Baptist Church
The church started as an outreach Sunday School from Hornsby Baptist Church meeting at Rofe Park. Land for a church building was donated by Mr Wheelhouse who lived in the area and was impressed with the Sunday School work.
Hornsby Heights Baptist Church began meeting officially on 11 August 1963 in the old church hall fondly known as the cottage. Our current building was completed in 1967.
Over the years, we have welcomed many new families and individuals into the church and still have several of the original members in our congregation. As Hornsby Heights has become a diversified community over the years, so too our congregation enjoys and embraces a diversified fellowship. We decided in 2016 to change the name of the church to better connect with the upcoming contemporary generation while still reflecting the uniqueness of our local area. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to call The Heights Church their spiritual home and hope that as we move into the next 50 years that we will continue effective ministry for Christ.
Vision and Mission
Our vision: To glorify God in everything we do.
Isaiah 43:7 Ephesians 1:5-6
God has put us on this earth to glorify Him, and we do that by loving Him with all our hearts, living in communion with Him, serving Him with all our strength.
Present Christ to everyone and present everyone mature in Christ.
‘To proclaim Christ, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone mature in Christ. To this end I labour, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.’ Colossians 1:28-29
To this end we will:
- Know Christ and make Him known
- Grow in Christ
- Show Christ to each other and our world
