Oatley, Baptist Church

The Mortdale-Oatley Baptist Church is located on the corner of Boundary Road and Woronora Parade, in the southern suburb of Oatley. The Mortdale Baptist Church dates back to 1896 when  it began as the Mortdale Mission, with services held in a small wooden hall known as the ‘Hut’ in Morts Road at  neighbouring Mortdale. The church has been at this site in Oatley since 1919 but only became known as the Mortdale-Oatley Baptist Church in 1998. In these days of dwindling church attendances, mergers of parishes and church closures, some churches are using these sorts of trendy signs with catchy slogans and websites as advertisements to attract parishioners.
