Sean L’Estrange, since 2013.
Inner north of Perth. Churchlands covers the suburbs of Churchlands, Floreat, Glendalough, City Beach, Wembley Downs and Woodland. Churchlands covers parts of the Cambridge and Stirling council areas.
Churchlands shifted north, losing City Beach to Cottesloe and gaining the southern half of Doubleview and a small part of Scarborough from the seat of Scaborough. These changes cut the Liberal margin from 13.2% to 11.7%.
The seat of Churchlands has existed since 1996. The seat was held for an independent for most of that time, and by the Liberal Party since 2013.
Churchlands was first won in 1996 by independent MP Liz Constable. Constable had first been elected to parliament at the 1991 Floreat by-election. She was a former member of the Liberal Party who had resigned to run for the by-election.
Constable was re-elected to parliament in 1993, 1996, 2001, 2005 and 2008, and became a minister in the Liberal-led government after the 2008 election. Constable retired at the 2013 election.
Liberal candidate Sean L’Estrange was elected to represent Churchlands in 2013, and he was re-elected in 2017.

Churchlands is a typical safe Liberal seat. The Liberal Party will probably hold this seat but no Liberal seat is safe if there is a massive Labor landslide.
