No. 919 - Lenah Valley - Hobart Nepali Church

Lenah Valley is a suburb of Hobart situated in the foothills of Mount Wellington north of the city centre. Lenah Valley was originally known as Kangaroo Bottom and later as Kangaroo Valley. Lenah is the native Aboriginal word for kangaroo.

The Hobart Nepali Church was established in 2010 and is the only Christian congregation of the Nepalese community in greater Hobart. Weekly services are held in the Lenah Valley Citywide Baptist Church located on Pottery Road. The church enables Nepalese believers to practice their Christian faith in their native Nepali language thereby sustaining Nepalese cultural life and community bonds.
