Welcome!

Our two congregations of Kempsey Presbyterian Church and Church at the Rocks (South West Rocks) meet every Sunday. You can find out more about each of our congregations by following the links above. On any given Sunday you can expect

  • to hear God’s word read from the Bible
  • to listen to Bible talk that seeks to explain what was read and how we should respond
  • to spend time in prayer
  • to sing songs in praise
  • to meet a welcoming community

During the service a collection of money may take place to fund the ministries of the church. If you’re visiting, please don’t feel obliged to contribute. Of course, if you’re a regular, this great opportunity to show your gratitude to God’s grace through material giving.

During the service you will get to know some of the leaders of the church, especially those who lead, preach and make announcements. Please don’t hesitate to approach them afterwards. They’ll be very happy to answer any questions.

Afterwards, each of our gatherings offers some kind of refreshment. Please join us for morning tea or lunch.

If you have enjoyed gathering with us on Sunday, why not join us for some of our other activities during the week. Being part of the family of God is so much more than meeting once on Sunday!
