Our Story


Bayside ChurchBayside Church International was birthed in mid-2002 as a joint venture between two churches in Adelaide’s southern suburbs. From small and humble beginnings in a high school drama room, Bayside has enjoyed consistent growth over the years, in the size of our congregation, the strength of our reputation and the scope of our services and ministry influence.

Our logo depicts the historical and picturesque ‘Encounter Bay’ in Victor Harbor, one of the many iconic landmarks of our region.

In 2011, Bayside established a permanent home-base by renovating a large warehouse in one of Victor Harbor’s industrial estates; providing us with the region’s largest contemporary church auditorium.

‘Pioneering pastors’, Chad & Jaye Mansbridge, describe Bayside as an independent Christian Church with a contemporary expression, a charistmatic theology, and a clear committment to following Jesus, and filling the earth with His love, truth and life.
