Built in 1888, St John The Baptist Church is an historic wooden building located on renowned Oxford Street, Bulimba. Framed by manicured lawns, the quaint church can seat up to 130 people and provides a beautiful and unique venue for a wedding, baptism or other pastoral ceremony.

A new addition to the church precinct is the recently developed Maheno Room that provides modern facilities for events. Other amenities include car parking, high speed Internet, commercial kitchen and audio visual hire.

The Maheno Room is a large room ideal for small conferences or functions. It can seat 120 people theatre-style or up to 80 people for a sit-down function on rectangle tables. It has a beautiful concertina window feature which can extend the room onto an outdoor area adjacent to the side entry of the church.




In addition you may also consider the following function hire arrangements:
– A function on the lawn adjacent to the church. This can be with or without a marquee.
– A function inside the church itself.
