The Barossa Arts and Convention Centre provides a thriving hub for entertainment in the Barossa Valley. The 1,000 seat Brenton Langbein Theatre and adjoining Eckermann Theatre host a wide range of activities each week – from College chapel services to classes and student groups. The Centre is also home to a number of community organisations, including the Barossa Dance Company, and Barossa Players group. To find out more, visit the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre website.
Gladys Bartsch Music Centre
Gladys Bartsch was a passionate Barossa local with a love for music, often seen playing the organ at St Thomas Lutheran Church, Stockwell. Gladys’ generous bequest provided the financial support to build this dedicated space, which features sound proof music booths and large teaching spaces, in which students can develop their God-given talents for years to come.
The centre also incorporates a gym that is available for student’s use during lunchtimes and for fitness training. The gym plays an active part in Faith’s physical education programs. This is also supported by sporting fields, including 2 large ovals, tennis and basketball courts.
Wine Education Centre
The Barossa is known for its proud winemaking heritage. As a key industry in the region, viticulture and winemaking was introduced to Faith’s agriculture program in 1992. Year 10 students learn valuable skills from hands on pruning and picking in the vineyard to winemaking processes involving fermentation and barrel maturation. All wines are made onsite at Faith in the Wine Education Centre and adjoining cellar.
Wines are made under the Mengler View Wines label and are available for purchase through the College.
