Venue hire

The Collins Street Baptist Church is a popular venue for all sorts of occasions.

CSBC plays host to a variety of events, including all genres of music, book launches, poetry readings and public lectures. We offer opportunities for musicians — both professional and amateur — to showcase their talents in recital and concert. The extraordinary acoustics of the sanctuary are well suited to single instrument and voice. We boast a beautiful yet simple building, wheelchair accessible, with a seating capacity for 450. We have both organ and grand piano for recital purposes.

Many couples choose CSBC as the venue for their wedding. The church’s grand entrance and beautifully maintained 19th century interior provide a magnificent setting for a ceremony to remember, while its central location with easy access to the city’s gardens, hotels and receptions centres makes it an attractive and convenient choice.

Meeting space in the CBD is often at a premium, especially for very small groups. CSBC can provide a meeting/seminar space for up to 50 people in theatre style or for a lesser number with tables and chairs. There is an adjoining fully-equipped kitchen together with toilet facilities. Bookings can be made for an hour, a day or a week at a time.

Contact the church office for more information, a schedule of fees, or to arrange a tour of the facilities. All enquires are welcome.
