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.

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.

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

On the air! Tune in…

Join us each Sunday morning at 9:30am for our ‘Lockdown Podcasts’ on 105.1 Life FM, Bendigo, commencing Sunday March 29th. As part of our regular podcasts from that date, Philip will be preaching on the theme, ‘God’s saints in tight spots’, to encourage us all through the stories of the differing (yet often difficult) circumstances that God’s people have faced – as told to us in the Scriptures.

Christianity Explored to begin online!

These really are crazy times. A spreading viral pandemic. 5 million people in Melbourne in lockdown. State borders closed. Countries banning travel in and out. 100+ days of lockdown and still counting! Life has become even more uncertain than it ever was.

In this age of uncertainty and fear where lots of people are asking questions, I would like to invite you to a course that asks (and answers) some of the bigger questions of life that are so relevant in these crazy times and 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 it would be much better to run this course face-to-face, the next best option is to do this online – and we can do this via Zoom.

The Christianity Explored Course is planned to begin on Tuesday July 21st from 7:30-9pm and then on the next 6 Tuesday nights. Would you like to join in? (You’ll need to be ‘Zoom ready’ on your computer.)

Please contact us if you’d like to attend so that we can 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, it’s 100% COVID-19 safe!

‘Elijah, the mountain and the whisper’ (1 Kings 19:1-18)

The onset of Elijah’s spiritual depression in 1 Kings 19:1-18 is well documented. From being on a spiritual high on Mt Carmel, Elijah very quickly was running for his life and yet praying that he might die. There were many kinds of factors involved in this, not the least being his sense of failure and being alone ‘the only one left’. On Mt Horeb (Sinai), Elijah met with God, but not in the way God appeared on Mt Carmel. This was different and this was designed to woo Elijah back into the Lord’s way and the knowledge of His presence, so that Elijah might continue to serve Him.
