We are pleased to announce that services have resumed at Whittlesea and Mernda churches. We hope to see you again soon!
Whittlesea Presbyterian Church
Welcome to Whittlesea Presbyterian Church. As a church, we have a passion for God and a passion for people. This means that we are dedicated to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who do not know the good news of the eternal happiness. In doing so, we remain firmly committed to the Reformed faith as the most consistent presentation and outworking of Biblical Christianity. We hold strongly to the Bible as its rule of faith and life. The Word of God is preaching every Sunday at 10:30.
St Andrews Presbyterian Church in Whittlesea was built in 1863 and has been a central part of the community since then. The church building is essentially original, but the meeting room at the rear has been added and extended in recent years so that we now have a facility that can cater for many types of events.
The township of Whittlesea is nestled at the base of the foothills of the Kinglake Ranges, and was a centre of activity in the aftermath of Black Saturday. Our church, along with others in the town pooled our resources and opened a bush-fire recovery centre known as Churches on Church staffed by trained church volunteers who provided spiritual, emotional and financial assistance to many of the bush-fire survivors.
It has been a great privilege to work with the other churches, and our hope is that this will be a means by which the love and compassion of Jesus is made known to our community.
