 What is CASP ?

?Northcote Baptist Church has been providing great programmes for the children and young people of the local community for many years now.

CASP  ‘Community After School Programmes’   is an initiative that we started a couple of years ago to let the children and families of our community know that NBC Church is a place where everyone is welcome.

Our aim is to provide high quality programmes for primary aged children in the areas of arts, craft and recreation.

Great time at our shared lunch

combined lunch

Last Sunday we had a great time sharing food and fellowship with the Morning English-speaking congregation and the Mandarin-speaking congregation. Several times a year we enjoy eating and chatting together and celebrating our NBC church community. A definite highlight is the delicious Chinese food!

Summer BBQs—Friday nights

We make it really simple for the host…guests bring some meat for the barbeque,
something to share in the way of salad, bread and drink, their own plates and
cutlery. This is a really easy way to gather and mix in a relaxed setting, have
some fun as a family and make firm friends.
Contact Janice if you would like information about where the Barbeque is this
Friday. We are also looking for homes to host each week—contact the office or
