 Eastside Baptist Church is situated at 2 Glengarry Crescent Invercargill New Zealand.

We are working to transform the suburb of Glengarry into a place of strong community spirit.  We identify the poverty and social disadvantage that some in the area are experiencing, and help others to fight and win against addictions. 

The role we have adopted is one of holistic transformation, not just spiritually, but relationally, physically and emotionally as well.
