Sydenham Baptist Church is located in the western suburbs of Melbourne, and aims to equip people to become committed followers of Jesus Christ.
We offer a place to connect with other people and develop life-long friendships, as well as a place to connect with God.
Everyone is welcome!
We run programs for all ages and stages of life, from babies right through to those blessed with the wisdom of age, as well as our regular Sunday Services.
Our Sunday Services have a relaxed, contemporary feel, where we look at everyday issues according to the principles God has given us through the Bible. Our hope is that through being part of our Church, you will be inspired, equipped and challenged to live your faith in every part of your life.
