Pastor Murray Hogg
Our pastor has been serving at East Camberwell Baptist Church since 2001.
Murray holds degrees in theology and engineering.
As is customary for Baptist churches, East Camberwell Baptist Church has a congregational system of government.
This means that while the church is a member of the Baptist Union of Victoria it takes responsibility for its own affairs.
Governance is entirely in the hands of the church diaconate — a governing body elected from amongt the members of the congregation.
East Camberwell Baptist Church was founded in 1922 on our current site.
At the time, East Camberwell was an outer suburb of Melbourne where market gardens were prevalent but the church was started in expectation of the growth that was to come.
Today we are a small but vibrant Christian community serving our local community in a number of ways including involvement in local age care facilities and running programs to meet the social and spiritual needs of those in our area.
