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.

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!!
