What To Expect

We invite you to visit either of our services on Sundays. For information about what to expect on our services, scroll down.

2-4 Lum Road, Wheelers Hill

Our two Sunday gatherings present opportunities for you and us to connect with God as well as others in a casual, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Each service, while slightly different in feel, will provide music, a life-giving message from the Bible and an opportunity to talk with members of the church before or after the service. We hope and strive to provide a welcoming atmosphere for everyone to come and experience the love of God.

All sermons are available shortly after each service here.

Morning Service - 10:00 am

Every service is lead by our excellent worship team and features a mix of contemporary music, prayers, stories and a message. Each message is usually brought by one of our pastoral team, and occasionally a visiting speaker brings a message from their mission field and an application for daily life.

We also share in communion on the first Sunday of every month.

Streamed weekly at https://livestream.waverleybaptist.org.au/ 

Evening Service 6:30pm

All ages are welcome to this service, with more opportunities for youth, young adults and young at heart to serve and meet together.

On the third Sunday of every month (exceptions may be present around Christmas and Easter), we share in a dinner and communion. Starting at 6:30pm, a dinner is brought and put together by various members of the congregation. There is no obligation to bring any food, and allergies and intolerances are catered for.

We also aim to cover a wider variety of missions from our Global Ministries, so come along to hear how we are supporting spreading the Word to the world.

COVID-safe Practices

If you are displaying symptoms of illness, we respectfully ask that you refrain from attending our services; live-streaming is available if you are unable to join us in person.


We have two main carparks available, one accessible via Waverley Road, the other from Lum Road. 

The Morning Service at 10:00 am often fills both carparks, so additional parking is available on Waverley and Lum Roads. Please be resepectful of our neighbours and their driveways.

The main entrance is up the stairs or ramp from Waverley Road carpark, with disabled parking next to the ramp. From there, the main auditorium is straight across the foyer.

Children and Youth Programs

Our morning service has a creche available for those that need this, which can be found by going past the toilets, walking straight to the door ahead of you. If it is locked, please let one of the sound/data crew know.
A stream of the audio is fed into this room, adjustible by the knob near the light switch.

Both kids programs start a little while into the service, after the first bracket of songs; with the worship MC praying for the children before they leave.

School Grades 1-6

Every Sunday, during the morning service, we gather to dive deeper into the Word of God. Looking at bible stories through games, puzzles and other activities, opens the door for God to work in the lives of our children. Come along to learn more about God’s word in a fun and engaging environment!

Please note that for all our kids progams,  including those not  held on Sundays, signing your children in and out is a requirement in order to maintain a safe environment for all children and youth leaders.

School Holidays

During school holidays children are encouraged to join in the service with their families; our kids and youth programs do not run in the holidays.


If you are unable to join us in-person, or would like to check out our services from home, live-streaming is available each Sunday.

All Morning Services are livestreamed via our website here. Streams start five minutes with a countdown clock and background music, before the service starts, and sermons are available later.

Evening Services are streamed on request due to lesser demand. Sermons are available afterwards. Communion services, on the third Sunday of the month, due to the nature of being a dinner and shorter-style message, are not livestreamed or recorded.

Please note some sermons cannot be made available to protect our supported missions.

During the Service

You may wonder what you can expect from a typical service.  Our morning service tends to be a more "traditional" service, while our evening service is led more by our young adults and families with pastoral oversight.
