Who are we?

“The church in the square with a heart for the city”

That’s who we want to be. That’s what we aspire to.

A group of people who have come to know Jesus as Saviour and Lord, and want others to know him too. We meet regularly to encourage each other to live out what we believe in practical ways.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Australia » We believe in the historic Christian faith as summarized in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds, and trace our spiritual heritage to the Protestant Reformation led by John Calvin in Geneva and John Knox in Scotland.

Because we want to know Jesus and make him known, we listen to what the Bible says about him. Whenever we gather, someone speaks from the Bible in a way that is clear, challenging and connects with people. We want our meetings to be easy to understand and easy to be a part of, even if you have never been to church before or not for a long time.

We like to think our meetings are warm and friendly; with songs, prayer and a clear Bible message. Everyone is welcome.

A crèche is available for small children and a kids program for primary school age children runs during the morning services.

We are always looking for ways to serve the city in which we are located.

We look forward to welcoming you into our community.

David Jones, Minister

What does it mean to be “Presbyterian”?

The term Presbyterian refers essentially to the way in which a church is governed. A Presbyterian Church is governed by elders according to the pattern seen in both the Old and New Testaments. This is in distinction to being ruled by bishops in a hierarchical model, or by members in a congregational model. In a Presbyterian church, biblically qualified elders are recognized through congregational election and rule the church corporately.

This government is exercised locally, regionally and nationally through a graded series of courts usually known as Session, Presbytery and General Assembly. It provides a way for the whole Church to be connected in mutual accountability and responsibility, and demonstrates organizationally our common bond as the body of Christ under His Headship.

A view of the Ann Street Church

We are a Bible based Church, believing that Scripture is the infallible Word of God and that Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.

We are a growing congregation who warmly welcome you to join with us in worship. The Congregation was established in 1849 and has occupied the present site since 1857. The current Church building has been in existence since 1871 although over the intervening years changes have been made. The buildings and other fixed assets of this Heritage site are administered by the Ann Street Presbyterian Church Trust »

A second trust, the Peirson Memorial Trust, administers property and care programs for children in need in the Wide Bay/Bundaberg area.
