Church Connect


Baptist Care SA’s Chaplaincy Service is provided in prisons,  public hospital and community health centres. 

Breaking Free

An extension of Baptist Care SA’s prison chaplaincy program, Breaking Free connects  people leaving prison with churches to support healthy and productive transitions back into communities.


It supports churches to embrace participants and welcome them into the life of the church. To establish mentoring relationships and give practical assistance while encouraging participants and fostering their independence. Any local church with a passion for this ministry has the potential to be involved.


Baptist Care SA, lives, works and walks on Kaurna, Peramangk and Boandik lands. We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the state’s first peoples, recognise their traditional ownership, and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs, deep connection and continued guardianship of land and waters. We value the contributions of Elders past and present, and are committed to learning from those emerging.
