Sri Guru Nanak Satsang Sabha (Hoppers Crossing)

Sri Guru Nanak Satsang Sabha (Hoppers Crossing)

The Sabha (SGNSS) was set up in 1981 to carry on the religious affair of the Sangat in Melbourne. Prior to that and beginning in 1977, families had met in private homes, then Rathdowne Primary School and later Box Hill Primary school as centres for the Sikh Sangat. In 1984, through the efforts of the pioneering families, the Uniting Church in Ferntree Gully was purchased and set up as the first Gurudwara in Melbourne. The move to the current premises at 127 Whitehorse Road, Blackburn, a postal warehouse refurbished and transformed to serve as a Gurudwara was made in late 1993.
