The Team

Jay Beatty

Senior Pastor

Jay has been the Senior Pastor at CBC since Feb 2008 and blissfully married to Fiona since Oct 1993 :). Jay has a science degree in Genetics and Microbiology and a background in aquaculture, manufacturing and recruitment. He owned and managed his own recruitment agency with three other directors in the early 2000's and while it was successful, it was time to fulfil to the call to pastor. Jay completed his M.Div at Malyon Bible College and during his time of studies was appointed as the pastor of CBC.

Jay and his wife Fiona have raised four young men - Josh, Sam, Ben and Gabe who have all accepted Christ as Lord. Jay and Fi believe that theology should not remain theoretical but be practical and as such promote the church’s mission ‘To know Christ and make Him known’ in all the ministries of the church. CBC has been blessed with steady growth which can only be attributed to the One who said “I will build My church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”.

Our mission is “to know Christ and make Him known.”

Our vision is “to be a growing biblical church community, significantly influencing our city; beyond through intentional outreach, fulfilling our mission."


Young Adults Leader

Recharge Youth! Headed up by Peter Alback


At Re-CHARGE! we want to have fun.  We aim to provide a safe, drug and alcohol free environment, that enables youth to connect with each other, gain friendships, and enjoy themselves.  We also learn more about God, how much He loves us and how He wants us to live our lives. Youth events occur Friday nights from 7pm until 9:30pm, during the school term. Recharge Youth is held at Chuwar Baptist Church. There is a small cost involved ($2), this cost contributes towards our snacks and activities.

Chuwar Baptist Church has adopted the ‘Child Safe’ Program to ensure that our children’s safety is put first. Our Child Safe Policies and procedures ensure that our children’s program and activities are all assessed for risks prior to commencement. It also means that all of our staff and volunteers are trained and qualified to be able to work with our Children. It also means any incident and/ or emergency is reported and responded to immediately and appropriately.


Who is our Youth Leader?

Peter Alback
From Pete's mouth...

"Jesus to me is the ultimate representation of God’s love for us. We could do nothing right before him and nothing for him. God did it all knowing that nothing we could ever do could every bridge that gap between us and him and to me, that’s awesome. God called me to youth ministry and salvation on an idle Friday in 2016. God has blessed me with a heart to bring the good news to young people by impacting their lives through quality relationships and fun. This all takes place at Recharge on a Friday night. From dodgeball to gala dinners Recharge Youth is a vibrant and welcoming place for everyone of high school age. Look forward to seeing you at Recharge, Friday nights 7-9:30pm at Chuwar Baps :) ."
