About our Community

L’Arche Melbourne was established in 2002 and since then has opened first house in the Bayside suburb of Blackrock, a second home in Mentone and third house in Cheltenham. We are an intentional community in the Christian tradition, respecting and welcoming people of all faiths and different beliefs. Each person is encouraged to discover and share their unique gifts and grow in love, self-giving and wholeness.
