Welcome Bay Church
On The Move

After several years of meeting in and functioning from various venues, we have finally moved back into the centre of Welcome Bay. Looking for a suitable site has been a long faith journey, and now it has come to fruition.

A three acre property at 340 Welcome Bay Road has been purchased. It's on the sweeping corner almost opposite Welcome Bay Primary School.

At last our church office and our Welcome Bay Sunday services are at the same address again.
