Westgate Baptist Community is a Christian church in Yarraville, in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Our address is 16 High St, Yarraville, Victoria 3012.



We are inspired by the challenge of Micah, an Old Testament prophet, who called the people of God ‘to do justice, to love kindness and walk humbly with God’ (Micah 6:8)

Jesus embodies this way of living in a unique and challenging way. Many of us have found in Jesus a life-changing relationship that challenges every aspect of our lives. This inspires us to acts of justice and mercy with those in our neighborhoods, our city and in wider society. As followers of Jesus, we can do nothing less.

Leadership Team

A Baptist distinctive is that we have no central hierarchy. While Baptists agree on key Christian doctrines, each Baptist church is self-governing and independent. This means there is great variety between Baptist churches. Major decisions are made by a democratic vote of church members in community meetings.

The congregation at Westgate Baptist Community elects its deacons and appoints its own pastor.

 Rev. Neville Taylor is our pastor.

We are a member church of the Baptist Union of Victoria.
