Join us at church
Sunday morning 9.30am – we’d love to see you!
We are a modern Baptist church located in the heart of Ryde, Sydney. We’d love you to join with us as we discover life in Jesus together!
Church starts at 9.30am and typically finishes between 10.30am and 10.45am. Each week we’re led in worship by our music team and have a Bible talk from one of our pastors or guests. Most weeks you’ll also be treated to a yummy morning tea or barista coffee afterwards!
If it’s your first time at RBC, make sure you say hello to the welcome volunteers at the front door and they’d be delighted to help with anything you need.

During school terms we have supervised kids and youth church activities for children from 18 months up to Year 8 at school.
As you enter the church through the front door, you’ll see our kids sign-in table – if you’re new or visiting with kids, come say hi to one of the friendly volunteers behind the desk!
We also have a baby change and breastfeeding room adjacent to the auditorium. If you’d like to use this room, you can still participate in church in privacy due to the one-way glass.
Getting to church
Ryde Baptist Church is located on the corner of Lane Cove Road and Dobson Crescent in Ryde, about 1km from Top Ryde Shopping Centre.
Arriving by car
Enter the carpark via Dobson Crescent for outdoor and undercover parking.
The carpark will fill up most weeks, so if you can’t find a spot then exit the carpark at the bottom to easily find a park on Myra Avenue.
If travelling from the south, make a right turn at Buffalo Road (before you reach the church) and use the back streets to reach Dobson Crescent, as the next available right turn is some distance past the church.
Arriving by public transport
From the north, buses come straight past the church down Lane Cove Road. The closest stop is outside the 7th-day Adventist Church next door.
Coming from the south, we recommended going past the church and getting off the bus at the Quarry Road intersection so that you can cross safely at the traffic lights. It’s then a short walk back up the hill to RBC.
As we’re just 10 minutes walk from Top Ryde Shopping Centre, you can also easily disembark there and walk to church if your bus doesn’t travel Lane Cove Road.
We have disabled parking spaces just as you enter the carpark. If these are in use, we also have a lift in the covered carpark underneath the church that you can use to travel directly to the auditorium.
We suggest arriving early to make sure you can get parking spot that best suits your needs.
Our Salvos partnership
Our Sunday services are run in partnership with Ryde Salvation Army – our churches have chosen to combine as one congregation on Sundays to bless one another and strengthen the way we minister in our city. So when you come to RBC, you’ll hear us say things like “Welcome to Ryde Baptists and Ryde Salvos”. Ryde Salvos ministry leaders will also regularly be involved in preaching, worship team and other ministry activities.
