Welcome to Ryde Baptist Church online!
We want to remind you that while we are currently unable to gather for our regular Sunday service, we are still family.  So we encourage you to connect with church family in ways that respect the Government's directions and have minimal risk for the vulnerable in our community.  If you are in need in any way, please ask for help.  If you are wondering why we aren't meeting, here is a letter from our elders regarding this situation.
This page is here to give you resources so that we can still have a shared experience of church.  We encourage you to take photos of your church experience, and post them on Instagram with the hashtag #light2gether or email them to the church office and we will find a way to share your experience of online church with the RBC family.  We would also love to hear and share testimonies of how God is at work in your life and our community.
For the best experience of this site on a phone or tablet, please rotate to landscape view, or even better air play/stream it to your TV.
Bible Reading - Psalm 27
 1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked advance against me
    to devou me,
it is my enemies and my foes
    who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
    my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
    even then I will be confident.
4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
    this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
    and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble
    he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
    and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted
    above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
    be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
    Your face, Lord, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
    do not turn your servant away in anger;
    you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me,
    God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
    the Lord will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Lord;
    lead me in a straight path
    because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.
13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.

Hi all. In Spark, we've been following a series looking at all things CHURCH related. This week we originally were planning to sit in on the service, particularly paying attention to a sermon. I've added a pdf with some helpful sections to try breakdown taking notes as you and your children listen/watch the sermon. Blessings Pastor Andrew

In this time while we are not gathering on a Sunday morning, it is encouraging and uplifting to hear and see what God is doing in the lives of others.  One of my prayers, in light of of the current situation, is that new songs would come from our worship team.  Stefanus done just that, written a song.  In response to the news that we aren't meeting this week Stefanus said "While I am reading this information, I am so blessed with Romans 8:28.  A melody pops on my head, in less that a day this song is created." I hope you are as encouraged and blessed as I am.  Please send your videos, photos, and stories so we can share them too! Pastor Ben
