Community

Here at Franklin Baptist Church we run many groups that are open to our community.

Time Out: A coffee and craft group that meets each Tuesday morning 9.45am—11.45am. Enjoy a cuppa and morning tea, meet others and make new friends. Join in the activities or bring along your own craft, knitting or hobby to work on. Crèche provided for preschoolers. A $2 donation is appreciated.
