Our History 

Encounter Baptist church was formed in February 2013 as a partnership between Stonnington Baptist Church, Syndal Baptist and Chadstone Baptist Church.

Chadstone Baptist Church ministered in the Chadstone area for 60 years based at Margot St.  Syndal Baptist Church is a large baptist church which supported and partnered with Chadstone Baptist Church in various ways over many years.  Stonnington Baptist church was planted by Crossway Baptist Church in 1999 and ministered in the Malvern/Armadale area.

The three churches come together to launch a new congregation in the Chadstone/Ashwood area with a fresh mission focus.
