Called to Community

Part of being a church of Christ’s disciples is connecting with one another to meaningfully share in each other’s lives. We do that in a number of ways. Every week we meet to share in worship together on Sunday mornings, concluding in a warm and substantial morning tea! Our conversations show our genuine love and care for each other. Once a month we share a church lunch together too. We also love to show hospitality, inviting people over to our homes. This really helps us bond together, becoming the kind of close family God has called us to be.

Wednesday Fellowship

For those not working during the day, we have a gathering at the church on Wednesday mornings where we enjoy a cuppa, singing, a look at the Bible and some topical sharing, finishing with a shared lunch. We start at 10:45 am.

Growth Groups & Bible Study

For a smaller gathering, we also have weekly gatherings to study the Bible, pray and care for each other, encouraging each other and building each other up (transforming disciples). These meet in homes during the week.

We also have a fortnightly Sunday Night Bible study focused on getting deeper into God’s Word.

Children’s Ministry

Discipling our children in the faith is very important to us at Bellarine Presbyterian Church. Some children stay in the Sunday service most of the time to worship with their families, and we have a talk and singing especially tailored to the children, with other aids to help them engage throughout the service. The NGPC Catechism is used to help teach children. We also have a crèche service available to care for young children during the service.

This year we are also commencing a Sunday School for children of primary school age. This will be specially designed to disciple children, carefully teaching the truths of God’s wonderful Word in a way children can easily grasp.

Bellarine Presbyterian Church is a Child Safe Church. Everyone working with children is vetted internally and externally, trained in Child Safe standards, and has a Working with Children Check. The Presbyterian Church takes child safety very seriously, and you can read much more about the standards and processes that apply at our church at http://www.safechurchpcv.org.au.
