SILVER STREET BAPTIST MISSION grew out of Marrickville Baptist Church (established 1887) as an effort to keep outreach and service in clear focus, particularly once Peter Green moved to non-stipendiary status.
We have a clear interest in marginalised people, and aim to love God, love people and preach the gospel.
We could be described as an unconventional evangelical church.
