Sundays at Mernda and Whittlesea
There is the opportunity to have something included in the prayer during the service – a church member is on duty in the entrance area before the service each week to make note of any specific items for prayer.
During each morning service, a creche and Sunday school are provided for children. The children join with everyone for the first half of the service and then go to the meeting room for their classes. All of our creche and Sunday school workers are required to have the applicable Working With Children (WWC) Check.
Our 9:15am service is a special time of community worship, where we meet together to pray, sing, read the Bible, and listen to a contemporary message from the Bible.
Morning Tea is held in a lovely cottage right next to Mernda Presbyterian Church. You’re most welcome to join us after the service for a cup of tea, and the opportunity to have fellowship with us.
1:00pm Arabic Service at Mernda Presbyterian Church
A special service for Arabic speakers.
There is also a Sunday school for children of the Arabic congregation.
Our 10:30am service is a special time of community worship, where we meet together to pray, sing, read the Bible, and listen to a contemporary message from the Bible.
Afterwards morning tea is provided at the rear of the church. This is an excellent opportunity to stay around and get to know each other better. Everyone is most welcome.
Creche is available for babies to 3 year olds and is supervised at all times by at least two volunteers from our congregation.
Classes are provided for 4 year olds to secondary school. We have two classes – 4 year old to grade 3, and grade 4 to year 7. During the school holidays there is an optional holiday programme for children up to year 6 in place of normal Sunday School classes. A gold coin offering is taken at Sunday School each week, and is used to sponsor a child in a developing country through Compassion Australia.
