Introducing Banksia House


Banksia House seeks to be an intentional Christian community where residents support each other in community, friendship and faith. This is more than a share-house, it is a home where you will share in faith and life - a unique opportunity offered by St Andrews Uniting Church.

Banksia House is a newly refurbished, furnished 4-bedroom, 2- bathroom home across the street from the St Andrews Uniting Church in Glenbrook, New South Wales, gateway to the Blue Mountains National Park.

With a short walk to Glenbrook train station and close proximity to many shops and cafes, this home is perfect for residents between the age of 18-30!

The household collectively and independently shares in decision making and day to day activities and planning such as cooking, cleaning, and shopping. The household is supported by an advisory group made up of members of the St Andrews Uniting Church congregation, who provide administrative and practical support as needed. Designated mentors, along with the Minister and the congregation work together to pastorally support the residents.  

Banksia House is a mission initiative of St Andrews Uniting Church, which seeks to support young adults as they explore the questions of faith in today’s world by living in intentional, inclusive, Christian community together. Banksia House is named after the native flower which is commonly found throughout the Blue Mountains.

Banksias come in a diverse range of colours, shapes and sizes, which reflects our values of being a church which celebrates and affirms the unique beauty and preciousness of each person. It is the hope of the congregation that the life of Banksia House will encourage all members to flourish and grow in their faith.
