Church Profile

The Kyabram Baptist Church was officially formed and affiliated with the Baptist Union of Victoria in 1953.  The church is ideally located in Kyabram near the centre of the main shopping strip with parking facilities on the church property and an adjacent free car park.

Kyabram is a rural town with good educational, recreational and medical facilities. It is regularly serviced with public transport to other major nearby centres, airports and train services to Melbourne.  Kyabram is situated in the the north central region of Victoria two and half hours drive from Melbourne.

The doctrine of the church is aligned with that of the Baptist Union of Victoria (see link to BUV). The weekly service seeks to involve members of the congregation in leading various segments of the service suited for an intergenerational congregation.

The demographics of Kyabram has changed over time due to the changing nature of the farming community which have also impacted upon the town and local employment. With these changes the church has sought to find ways to minister to the changing needs of the community. This has been through:

  • Creating a ladies craft afternoon at Warramunda Aged Care;
  • Making the building facilities available to various groups;
  • Supporting Teenchallenge in Kyabram;
  • An outdoor dawn service at the Kyabram Fauna Park;
  • Children’s Holiday Club; and
  • Soiree – Gospel musical afternoon.

The church is involved with conducting services at Warramunda Aged Care, Sheridan Nursing Home & Pat Hayes Centre.

Throughout the week there are  small groups meeting for prayer, bible study and fellowship.

The church logo symbolises the church in the four sets of hands: praying hands, helping hands, welcoming hands, and compassionate hands.  Through the symbolism of the hands the church seeks to live out its beliefs and faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
