South Yarra Presbyterian Church (Melbourne, Australia)
Look to the Heavens at South Yarra Presbyterian Church
Beautiful situated adjacent to Fawkner Park about five kilometres from Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD), South Yarra Presbyterian Church (SYPC) has stood on this ground since 1854. Rich in history, this church forms part of the Presbyterian Church of Australia (PCA), and preaches orthodox Christianity in an evangelical tradition. SYPC welcomes all people who seek the Christian truth, and believe that the teachings of the Bible are relevant in today’s times. Members of this church pride themselves on being inclusive, so no matter your background or spiritual beliefs, you can expect a warm welcome.
All There is to Know About SYPC
If you’re thinking of attending a service, you’ll be pleased to know that there are two services every Sunday of the year, one in the morning, and one in the evening. You can expect to sing both traditional and modern Christian songs, a reading from the Bible, and prayer. Unlike most churches, SYPC believes that a family should worship together. This is why there is no separate service for children. Instead, Sunday school is held before each church service.
If on the other hand you wish to plan a wedding or baptism, SYPC is a beautiful place to do so. The interiors have been preserved throughout the years, with vibrant stained windows and high vaulted ceilings to form a perfect backdrop to a special day. And if you’re looking for that perfect picture for the front cover of your future wedding album, the nearby Fawkner Park has numerous scenic walkways that are sure to be a photographers dream setting. If you have any questions regarding planning an event at the church, you can contact the administrative staff through their main website’s contact page.
