Book the Best Christening Venue

Practising your faith is a personal path for everybody, and your child’s christening effectively marks the beginning of their journey. Your children begin their explorations into spirituality with their parents, grandparents, and godparents at their side.

As they grow up and learn to think critically for themselves, chances are their relationship with God will be shaped to match their own perceptions of humanity, love, life, and the wider world around them. With the skies well and truly being the limit when it comes to embarking on a spiritual journey, why not book a Melbourne-based christening venue that offers a breath of fresh air?

So come and have a look at all that Canvas House has to offer! Get in touch with our passionate team to book a tour of Melbourne’s most christening function venue today. Call us on 0478 056 390 or fill in the form today.

Getting Here

Positioned at the core of South Melbourne (3205) and moments from Melbourne CBD, our locale is a gateway to attractions like South Melbourne Market and Southbank. Plus, the Botanical Gardens are just a couple of km away. Local dining, including the renowned Golden Fleece, is just a leisurely walk away. You’ll also appreciate our closeness to the 109 tram and available street parking.

Even with all the tireless work and dedication we’ve put into making Canvas House the breath-taking contemporary christening reception venue that it is, we know that the best place to host your child’s christening is anywhere that your friends, family, and loved ones can be in attendance too. Thankfully, our South Melbourne warehouse provides a highly accessible and central location for your child’s christening. Christenings are a journey you share with your child, so this means that family from all corners of Melbourne can easily be in attendance and celebrate this joyous occasion.
