St Silas has four services on a Sunday: 8:30am (Traditional), 10am (Contemporary all age with kids ministry), and 5:30pm (Contemporary, with supper beforehand). Each of our services are different, some honoring tradition, some enjoying new styles of worship but each one is committed to coming together on Sundays around God’s Word to learn about Jesus Christ and the difference he can make to our lives and to the lives of those we love. During the week we run daytime Playgroups, Mainly Music and Bible studies.  Our site staff team is led by Rev Tracy Lauersen. Our largest congregation is our Ten Am congregation.

Within the St Hilary’s network of churches, we have a vision to be a transforming community of people who:

  • Know God’s Love in Christ
  • Share God’s Love with one another
  • Give God’s Love in mission to our local community and beyond.


We love our local Boroondara community and are actively involved in supporting our local schools, kinders and retirement homes and we participate annually in local street and Christmas festivals. Our church community life is lived out through small groups and missional communities that meet in homes through the week.

We are blessed with a great garden, including a veggie patch that our kids enjoy during playgroups and after church and our Sunday congregations often share social time together there when the weather is fine.
