Under Christ, Bowral Baptist Church is led by a leadership team comprising our Pastor and several Deacons.


Pastor: Rev. Andrew Smith

Andrew joined BBC in February 2022, having previously served as Associate Pastor at Nowra Baptist. Andrew is married to Irene, and has one son, Peter. He has completed both a Master of Ministry & Master of Arts (Ministry) at Morling College. Andrew is passionate about people coming to know the true life that is found in Jesus, and seeing people equipped to be passionate disciple-makers in their homes, workplaces and schools. In his spare time, Andrew loves sport (particularly cricket, football and Formula One), walking, and is a self-confessed coffee snob.



Our Deacons oversee the practical and administrative aspects of church life, including pastoral care, administration, ministry oversight, compliance and administration. Our Diaconate currently consists of the following members:

  • Lance Herbert (Treasurer)
  • Debbie Bollinger (Deacon’s Secretary & Safe Church oversight)
  • Wendell Merchant
  • Selwyn Sexton
  • Wally Stoll
  • Alistair Wood
