Welcome to Waverley Baptist Church

Latest News - 20th October 2021

Dear friends,

With the lifting of lockdown midnight Thursday (Oct 21) we are permitted to have up to 20 vaccinated people in the building for services. This is not enough to invite the wider congregation; our priority at the moment is enhancing our Worship by having live musicians and singers. This will allow us to choose a wider range of songs and hopefully get a better sound for our stream and thus enhance the worship at home.

The induction service for our Pastor, Dave Harrison, is tentatively set now for 9.30am on November 28th. Hopefully, by that date a good number of us will be able to be together in the building.

Thank you for giving your offerings through direct debit; you may continue to give in this way, or use the retiring offering box in the foyer. Remember your Welfare Offerings. Banking Information is in the Newsletter.

Contact our Pastors if you wish for prayer over the phone or would like a Pastoral visit.

Yours in Christ,

Rev. David O'Brien

Senior Pastor and Church Council Chair

About Us

Welcome to our church website.

We are a family church in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We seek to help one another grow in Christ and share his love with everyone, so both local and global ministries are emphasized, with a strong teaching ministry from our pastors and other capable members.

We are a very diverse group with many nationalities and a number of first languages, though services are in English. Apart from our 'Anglo' Aussies, people from England, Scotland, the U.S., Korea, China, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Egypt, Malaysia and more are part of our Church family. We love and welcome the microcosm of the 'nations' that God has brought together in this place.

As you look around and get a feel for our church, check out our Values and Beliefs. Feel free to share any comments or questions that might be on your mind through our contact page or email our pastor directly. If you are visiting, or live in our area, and are looking for a Church home, we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services, or stream it online. And of course, feel free to reach out and call one of our Pastors.

We also invite you to make an online prayer request. Your prayer request will be passed on to our Prayer Chain, and who knows what God will do.

Newsletters are available from Friday afternoons.

Many blessings to you,

Senior Pastor David O'Brien
