The Last Breakfast

Ever woken up on a Sunday morning and thought “I’d rather just have a slow breakfast and a relaxed start to the morning”? Well, we couldn’t agree more – so on the last Sunday of every month we’re doing just that!

Join us at 10am on the last Sunday of each month as we share breakfast together as a community – at one big long table right in the middle of the church – and enjoy some relaxed time together with some simple reflections, readings, and opportunities for prayer in the midst of coffee, toast and whatever else might be on the menu!

Jesus did some of his most important teaching and ministering at the table, surrounded by food, friends, and newcomers – And we’re looking forward to sharing that with you to!

Season of Creation

From the 1st of September until the 9th of October, we are taking part in the global Season of Creation!

Come and join us, in-person or online, as we journey through the many creation stories contained within the Bible (yes, there’s not just one!!) and explore what that means regarding the blessing and responsibility of being a part of God’s creation.

Box Hill Village Market – 1 October 2022

After the huge success of our first Village Market in April this year, we are returning with a Spring Market on Saturday the 1st of October 2022, from 10am-2pm.

We look forward to another festive, community event filled with local creators and makers, lots of food and entertainment, and the joy of bringing together our diverse local community.

If you are a local maker or creator who is interested in having a stall at the event, we encourage you to get in touch ( so we can include you in the fun!

And for everybody else, make sure to save the date!!

Living the Questions (Round 2)

Living the Questions is an open-minded alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what’s next for Christianity.

We have just completed the first ’round’ of 7 weeks: “Invitation to Journey,” and are now embarking on the second flight: “Honoring Creation”.

New members are most welcome to join, and you won’t be ‘behind’ because you missed earlier sessions we promise!

Sessions take place on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month, at 5 Ellingworth Parade Box Hill. You can find out more and get involved by emailing

New English Language Classes (for beginners!)

In addition to our existing Thursday conversational English class (10:30-12:30) we are delighted to be able to offer a new class especially for those with little to no English language ability on Wednesdays, 10-11:30am.

All classes are held at The Barn (3 Ellingworth Parade) and are FREE.

If you’d like to be involved or know someone who would, get in touch at

Supporting the local community.

Box Hill Baptist is a local, neighbourhood church – One that is made up of people from the local community and committed to serving the needs of the local community. In many ways, we’re a bit like an old village church, except our Village is the growing metropolis that is Box Hill!

We aim to create a space where all of those people who call Box Hill and the neighbouring areas home feel welcome, encouraged and supported.

We run a range of programs and initiatives to reach out and show God’s love to the diverse communities we share this city with, from practical programs supporting our most vulnerable, to fun and engaging activities where people meet new friends and are truly included.

You can find out more about our growing range of community ministries here.

Inclusive and Affirming

We believe in a God of infinite creativity and as such welcome God’s people in all their wonderful diversity – be that diversity of culture, language, gender, age, sexuality, socio-economic background, ability, or any other dimension which makes you uniquely you.

No matter what your faith journey has been, you are welcome here – without judgement, and without conditions.

Exploring our faith courageously

Through our shared lives & experiences we constantly challenge & grow our understanding of God’s message to us, to make the good news of Jesus Christ accessible, relevant and meaningful to all.

We don’t pretend to provide easy answers to life’s most challenging questions. Instead, we challenge our own understandings of God as they relate to the world today. We recognise that our understandings are always imperfect, changing and evolving, and therefore affirm and include a wide range of views, beliefs and understandings about God, Jesus, the Church, and how we engage with the world.

We take the Bible seriously (but not always literally), and always make sure we don’t hit people over the head with it!!
