Sri Lanka Baptist Sangamaya includes four main departments also identified as auxilliaries, namely : Men's Fellowship, Women's Fellowship, Sunday School and Youth Fellowship that represent the respective groups among the Baptist population. These auxilliaries organize various programmes and activities under the guidance of the Sri Lanka Baptist Sangamaya to promote Christianity and strengthen belief in Jesus.
