Our vision

Light on the hill

For almost 100 years Como Baptist Church has been an active, caring and supportive member of the Como community.

Its mission is to be a loving community inspiring people to say ‘yes’ to Jesus and his way of life.

The Church’s goal is to continue its presence and commitment to the people of this area, through a vibrant new mixed use residential and commercial development.

The development’s strong community and not-for-profit ethos will see it provide facilities which are as accessible as possible to people of all ages, abilities and stages of life, and physical needs. Continuing its active, on-site presence, the Church’s Bridge Organisation will actively manage community facilities and services, and where possible, work in conjunction with other community service organisations, such as supported housing, aging, disability and special needs providers, and the City of South Perth to ensure effective ongoing delivery of community services and facilities.

The development will comprise elements such as:

Heritage

South Como Hall (‘the Chapel’) and Tuart tree, as well as a new heritage walk integrating the local indigenous story and historical markers.

Public Open Space

Public Plaza, art displays, markets and special events, landscaping and café facilities, community gatherings and informal meeting spaces, as well as amenities and facilities, incorporating a children’s play area.

Education

Expansion of the Canning Bridge Early Learning Centre for up to 59 0-4 year olds; facilities for community seminars, short courses and public interest discussions.

Community Facilities

Expanded chaplaincy, wellness centre, activity hubs such as playgroups and fellowship space, meetings and conference rooms, medical and services for seniors, creating a community hub ethos.
