Welcome to Whittlesea/Mernda 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.

Visitors and new members most welcome!

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.

Brief History

The opening service for worship of Mayfield (Mernda) Presbyterian Church on 3 March 1861, as reported in the Melbourne Argus 11 March 1861, and of Whittlesea Church in 1863, reflect the 1850s arrival in Plenty Valley of Scottish immigrants. A comprehensive history of Mernda Church is written by Dr. Richard Ely, is available from the church itself as part of the historical precinct, and it will be placed in this website in 2016.

Brief History

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.
