Welcome to Westgate!

Westgate Baptist Community is a Baptist Church, formed in 1982 through the coming together of three smaller Baptist Churches - Yarraville Baptist, South Kingsville Baptist and Kingsville Baptist.

For over twenty years, the Church has sought to live out the good news in our local area, responding to local and global issues and seeking to be faithful disciples of Jesus in all areas of individual and communal life.
You are welcome to join us for our regular gathering for worship, children's and youth groups.

We meet on Sundays at 10am, at 16 High Street, Yarraville.  More information about the services and the church is available on: Tel: 9314 7626 or email us: churchoffice@westgatebaptist.org.au.
