Glasshouse Christian College | A Sunshine Coast Independent School


Glasshouse Christian College is a ministry of the Glasshouse Country Baptist Church (GCBC) in Beerwah. The College opened on the 31 January 2000 with 16 children and is now one of the most thriving Sunshine Coast Independent Schools with more than 1100 students.

Before our College was established, the church elders had been praying about establishing a Christian school but didn’t have the land in order to do so. A retired missionary from India, Miss Emily Lord, had a vision that the land would be in Roberts Road, Beerwah. At the time this seemed impossible as the land belonged to the council and was not for sale. Soon after that, the land became available for sale and Glasshouse Country Baptist Church was able to purchase it. The church people gave up weekends to clear the land and put in the first small demountable building that housed the whole school. This building is still on the campus and is now called ‘B’ Block.

Twenty years later, Glasshouse Christian College is an extremely well-known independent school on the Sunshine Coast with a great reputation in the Sunshine Coast community.
