No. 1399 - Beauty Point - The Point Baptist Church

Beauty Point is a port town in the West Tamar region approximately 5 kilometres north of Beaconsfield. This was the first deep-water berth that was established on the Tamar River and it once serviced the goldfields at Beaconsfield.

The Point Baptist Church is one of a growing number of newly established churches that operate from hired premises and which often choose not to build their own place of worship. Some of these church communities are short-lived while others are more enduring. The Point Baptist Church meets in premises at Sea Horse World on the Inspection Head Wharf.

The church was established in 2006 as a ‘plant church’ by the Newstead Baptist church. It was formally constituted in 2009 as The Point Christian Fellowship. The church initially met in the Beauty Point Uniting Church until 2020 when it moved to Inspection Head Wharf. The church is a member of Tasmanian Baptists, a union of nearly 30 churches.

In 2021, the church partnered with several other churches in northern Tasmania to open the Creation Discovery Centre which is also situated on Inspection Head Wharf.
