Welcome

As one of the many churches in Bendigo, we are a community of Christians of all ages, reformed and evangelical in our theology and practise.

We meet at 10:30am every Sunday  (9:30am on Good Friday and Christmas Day) on the corner of Forest and MacKenzie Streets, Bendigo.

You can also catch us on 105.1 Life FM, each Sunday at 9am.

We confess faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and rejoice in the salvation He freely gives His people by His grace. In response to God’s goodness in this way, we seek to love God in return and seek to share what we have come to know with the people of Bendigo and surrounds.

Are you searching for more about this salvation, what it means to be a Christian or what is so good about the good news? We’d love to meet you and answer any questions you have. Or maybe you have something you’d like us to pray about? Why not contact us and let us know?

Together with Eaglehawk PC and Reforming, Bendigo East PC, we form the three Presbyterian ‘sister’ churches in Bendigo.

We are open each Sunday, but…(read on!)

Restrictions have lifted enough in regional Victoria to allow us to have 20 at our morning worship each Sunday at 10:30am until further notice. But to attend, you’ll need to reserve a place by contacting us. There will be other opportunties during the afternoon to ‘catch up’ with one another in the hall for fellowship, prayer and devotions, but again you’ll need to reserve a place to attend one of these.

With these small steps in place, we are looking forward to the day that we can all get back together in the one place, if not here, then one day in the full presence and glory of our Saviour!

‘Christianity Explored’

These really are uncertain times… and yet are also a really good opportunity to be asking some good questions, some of the bigger questions of life that will always be eternally important. Questions like, ‘Who is Jesus’ and ‘What does it mean to believe in Him’? These are questions that will be raised during an online course called ‘Christianity Explored.’

Christianity Explored is an informal and relaxed seven-week course based on the Gospel of Mark that gives time and space to consider the big questions of life and to explore the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.

It’s an ideal course to attend if you want to:

  • Find out what it what it means to be a Christian
  • Get involved in a Bible study group on the Gospel of Mark
  • Hear what the Bible says about the meaning of life
  • Go over some Bible basics so that you can share your faith better
  • Ask some questions about Christianity in an informal and non-threatening setting

As part of the course, the following also apply – you won’t need to know anything about the Bible, nor will you be asked to read aloud, pray or sing… but you will be able to ask any question you want!

Although this course runs best face-to-face (which is not possible at the moment), the next best option is to do this online – and we can do this via Zoom. Would you like to join in? (You’ll need to be ‘Zoom ready’ on your computer.)

Please contact us if you’d like to get some answers to those big questions and we will send you the needed Zoom link. There’s no restrictions as to how many can attend, and as there’s no need to leave home (guaranteed 100% COVID-19 safe!).

‘Transformed by the gospel into a model Church’ (1 Thessalonians 1:1-10)

In 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10, we read the first chapter of the first letter of the Apostle Paul to the church at Thessalonica. The church there began through the preaching of Paul, but according to Acts 17:1-9, the Apostle couldn’t stick around too long to make sure that all went well with the believers there. Perecution from the emeies of the gospel drove him away. After some time, Paul sent Timothy to see how the church at Thessalonica was fairing and this resulted in his first letter to the church there, a letter which reveals the depth of the transforming work that the gospel had caused in the lives of these believers – turning them away from worshipping idols to worship and to wait for God’s one and only Son and Saviour, Jesus.
