Ballarat Christian Assembly is a Christ centred Pentecostal church established by the grace of God in Ballarat. As early as 2009, few newly migrated Malayalee families used to meet regularly, in houses on Mondays for prayer and fellowship. On17th March 2013, this small gathering was officially established as Ballarat Christian Assembly. Currently our worship is bilingual i.e. in English and Malayalam.
Our mission is to reach out to the local community with the message of love, hope and faith. We pray and work towards transforming the members of our community to prepare themselves for eternity with our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
