Eltham Baptist Church
Eltham is located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, in Australia.
Eltham is well known for three key features:
(i) Located in the heart of Melbourne’s famous ‘green wedge’, with dwellings ranging from urban settings to remote and tranquil bush properties.
(ii) the area is generally a close-knit community in a ‘village’ atmosphere, with a relatively close knit community
(iii) The well known historical and artistic reputation of the area is another reason people give for wanting to live here today.
Now over 20 years old, Eltham Baptist is inextricably linked to its community. The Sunday morning services are located in the local Eltham High School Hall, and the evening services, which are more relaxed style, occur at the same location as the Church Offices, called ‘The Bolt’. The more informal meetings occur during the week in people’s homes and a further ministry focus is the playgroups
As a Church we are relaxed, informal, contemporary, personal and inviting.
