New to the area?
Canterbury and its surrounding suburbs are set in the the inner east of Melbourne. The church is surrounded by some of Melbourne's finest cafes, tourist attractions, green spaces, and education facilities. The local community is passionate about the environment, justice and equality which is reflected in the character of the CBC congregation.
Canterbury Norwood Kindergarten
Located on the church property, the kindergarten has been established and operating on the same premises since 1947 which has enabled them to develop a rich history and invaluable links with the local community. At the same time they take pride in the fresh and current learning environment provided to the children and the forward-thinking pre-school program. A testament to this longevity and community connection is the past Canterbury Norwood students who now have their own children at the kinder!
