Overview of Carey

The Carey Group is a community of organisations that serve and minister to the community around us and beyond, as part of the ministry of Carey Baptist Church. Carey was established as a church plant in 1996, and since that time has grown to be two campuses, with schools, a cafe and community centre, an early years child education and care service and many other activities and ministries on the campuses and beyond.  

Carey is a community of faith on mission in the world. As such, how we live and serve together matters. Mission, faith and relationships are three words that are used to describe Carey. The gospel is the foundation from which we serve, in an environment that respects the diversity of our students, their families and the broader community. We believe that we earn the right to speak by seeking to serve out of our values of kindness, courage, respect, humility and integrity.

  • Kindness: a concern for others, which compels us to act for their good.

  • Courage: the willingness to act well in the face of uncertainty and fear, and a willingness not to settle for mediocrity.

  • Respect: sensing and honouring the God-given worth in another.  We recognise the value of those we serve and that they deserve our best.

  • Humility: embracing a clear perspective for ones place with God and others and seeking to benefit others above ourselves.

  • Integrity: being honest and consistently living out our moral principles, whether seen or unseen.
