We are a Christ-centred, contemporary, family church committed to inclusivity, diversity and the ongoing transformation of ourselves and the world.

Our vision is that the love of Christ will compel us towards individual transformation, church transformation and the transformation of our community and our world.

We aim for a culture of discipleship, where we all REACH, GROW, CARE AND SERVE.

We want to be that church.


Home Ground  Church started as a bible club in 1946 - a project of love formed by three families; the Munros, the Harlands and the Mitchells.


We soon grew to include a Sunday School, Mothers' Meetings, SCAs, Youth and Bible Studies.

On 5 December 1963, fifty-eight people signed a document as founding members of, what was then known as, the Highway Baptist Church. It later became know as Westville Baptist Church.

The church first met in the Town Hall, then moved to the MOTH hall with the vision to one day have our own church building.


On the 25th of May 1968, we celebrated the opening of our first premises on Church Road. Soon we outgrew this building and in 2001, we walked across the road to our current home.​

We have been involved in deeply impacting and uplifting our local community and we aim to only reach more as we believe this is our Home Ground.


We are in this together with some incredible partners. We believe that change happens best when you work as a team and share resources, hearts, and vision with others. These are our partners at Home Ground.
