  • Seeking to be a centre of God’s love and hope in Bentleigh.
    In order to ensure we are meeting the current needs of our congregations and wider community, we are conducting a survey in February, to understand:
    • The spiritual care needs of individuals/families/groups within our congregations, groups and wider community and whether they are currently being met.
    • Those who are willing to help in providing care for people (both practical and spiritual).
    At group meetings and services in February you will be given a chance to fill in the survey. If you would like to be part of the survey but won't be at your regular group or service in February, or are not currently active in the parish and would like to be involved in the survey, please contact the church office by phone (03) 9557 2226 or
    email to be included.
