Our church is a culturally diverse and exciting Christian church.  We are one of the 200 Baptist Churches in Victoria who co-operate together under the Baptist Union of Victoria.  We have a congregation representing a broad cross-section of the North Balwyn community with a focus on families and contemporary worship.

Our congregation also consists of a number of people who have come from other countries including …

    England, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Poland, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Burma, India, Sri Lanka, Malawi, New Zealand, Palestine, Greece, Korea, Canada, Nepal and France ...
Our services are inter-generational and cross-cultural and include a number of special focus events through the year like International Sunday when we celebrate our cultural diversity.
