We love “for real”. These are the people you find in our Church. People of all ages, people from all walks of life, people with great success, people with serious challenges. All are welcome here, as they are.
We are excited about following Jesus. We unreservedly and wholeheartedly know that Jesus makes every difference in our lives and world. We love sharing this great news with those around us.
We know that faith in Jesus makes a difference in real life. This is why we love changing and growing. This is why we are motivated and mobilised to contribute in our world. In following Jesus, he promised abundant life – it is! And it is not just for us.
It’s incredible what ordinary people can do when they trust an extraordinary God.
Village Church is part of the Baptist Churches of South Australia and grew out of Blackwood Hills Baptist Church.
Since 1939 Blackwood Hills has had a strong history of community involvement, children and youth programmes, and a global vision.
In 2004, we moved to a larger facility in Blackwood and became Blackwood Hills Baptist Church. This was a substantial step of faith and characterizes the sacrificial and generous, faith-filled and risk-taking people who make up our Church.
Since 2009 it has been the vision of Blackwood Hills Baptist Church to plant Churches in Adelaide. In 2010, a group of 35 adults stepped out to plant a church campus, Village Church Melrose Park. After 18 months of prayer and preparation, Village Church Norwood was also launched in February 2015.
In 2011 we planted a Village Church in Melrose Park and in 2015 a congregation in Norwood.
75 years ago in 1939, eight people began meeting in Eden Hills, Adelaide – the birthplace of our church. By all accounts they were just ordinary people.
We are excited about making a difference in the lives of people and contributing in your community. We’d love for you to join with us to play a part in the history and future of Village Church.
If you would like to connect with great people, explore faith and grab a hold of life, we’d love for you to join us any Sunday at one of our locations. Hope to see you there!
