Multicultural Churches

One of the features and strengths of the BUV is our cultural and linguistic diversity. This reflects the multi-racial demographics of Victoria and the biblical vision of the Church comprising “a great multitude from every nation, tribe, people and language” (Revelation 7:9).

Within the BUV, there are 135 congregations that use a language other than English.

The Church Health & Capacity Building Team supports these churches in various ways as they seek to develop their life and mission in Victoria. The Team also assist churches that are predominately Western in culture and English-speaking to engage with people from other cultures.
