Our History


The Birth of Fairfield Baptist Church

Fairfield Baptist began in 2013 when God led a group of members from Northreach Baptist Church, which meets at Kirwan, to start a new work in this area. 

The church was led from its inception by Pastor Stan Solomon, a deeply respected Baptist pastor. 



Initially we were a ministry of Northreach Baptist Church, but in 2014 were independently recognised by our denomination, Queensland Baptists.
