At Newport Presbyterian Church, we're all about Jesus.
Our dream is to see more people worshiping Jesus in church on Sunday. Pittwater Presbyterian is a Church with a mission to connect people to the life, love and freedom Jesus offers.
What does Presbyterian Mean?
We are part of the Presbyterian Church of Australia.
The word Presbyterian comes from the Greek word Presbuteros (πρεσβύτερος ). This word simply means ‘elder’. Therefore as a Presbyterian Church we have elders who have oversight of everything that happens in our Church to provide accountability and care for our people.
Our Team & Elders:
