About Us

A regionally focussed Church that impacts people's lives through making disciples for Christ.

The Balaklava Church of Christ was founded in 1877, and since then we have enjoyed over 140 years of worship and fellowship in the town of Balaklava. 

Although we are in a beautiful, traditional building, our services are relaxed and contemporary. A typical service with us includes a selection of songs, communion (we celebrate this every week), a whole church prayer, and a message from Pastor Carl. Afterwards we have coffee and tea in the hall to catch up and fellowship; a great opportunity to meet any visitors.

You are welcome at our church.

We would love to get to know you one Sunday very soon. 

Carl & Tanja Haasbroek


Carl & Tanja are originally from the Kalahari in South Africa, and moved to Australia after God called Carl to be the pastor of the Balaklava Church of Christ. They arrived in 2008, and since then have helped lead and encourage the local Church in Balaklava.  

Carl has a passion for seeing Balaklava saved, and is involved with other community based projects in the region. Tanja is on our Ministry to Women team, and works at Horizon Christian School. 


They have 2 children, and together they are all greatly valued members of our church.
