We also have a 5 star rated kitchen making self-catering that much easier. Offering private, community and commercial rates it is well worth seeing our facilities.

The congregation occupies a modern set of buildings on the corner of Kingsway and Bogong Avenue in central Glen Waverley, across the road from the Glen Waverley public library, and behind the City of Monash Civic Centre on Springvale Road. There are hotel and motels in close proximity and numerous coffee shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
The building comprises a large 350+ seating worship area, a hall that can accommodate 150 people seated for a meal, four multipurpose meeting rooms that can seat 20 to 50 people and a large foyer/fellowship area, all served by a large kitchen.
The worship area is well equipped. The entire complex can handle conferences with portable whiteboards and limited video and audio equipment.
The complex is a no smoking and no alcohol complex. Onsite parking is very limited. However, there is extensive public parking in the surrounding shopping precinct. Hirers cannot book the church carpark which remains available for anyone using the facilities at all times.
Charges are flexible and competitive starting at around $30 per hour for some smaller rooms. The worship centre, if available, can be booked for approved concerts, weddings or funerals with charges commencing at $150 per hour. Flowers, and food for functions can be arranged by negotiation.
For example, there is a fixed price of $300 for worship centre hire for weddings, which does not include rehearsal time, that comes at an additional cost.
