A bit about us…….
Clarence Town Presbyterian Church
SERVICES – 11.00am every Sunday
Located at 29 Marshall Street, Clarence Town (opposite the Public School), St David’s Presbyterian Church was built in 1905. It has continued to be a place of public worship since that time, and currently has a growing congregation of followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and redeemer of humanity. We believe in the God of the Bible, who is Trinitarian in nature – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We hold Scripture to be God-breathed and the supreme standard of our faith, where all parts of it are useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. (2 Tim 3:7) Our Minister Allan Welch and his family commenced serving here at Clarence Town Presbyterian Church in February 2019.
What to expect…
The Congregation currently meets at the Clarence Town Public School Hall location opposite the church building in Marshall Street. Services consist of singing songs of praise as a gathering of God’ people, offering prayers in adoration of God, confession, thanksgiving and prayers for the sick, our towns, our country and the world. We have a sermon from a passage in the Bible (normally about 25 minutes, either as part of a series or topical) and morning tea together afterwards.
The service is lead by a member of the Church congregation, and the sermon is delivered most often by our Pastor – Allan Welch. The congregation is led in prayer by a member of the congregation. Sometimes we have shared prayer. This is where about 2 or 3 people pray in turn out loud from their seats for a short time – either thanking God for his blessings or asking God to intervene in our lives.
Lord’s Supper is held quarterly – and all who profess faith in the Lord Jesus are welcome to partake in the bread and wine, as a way of remembering the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins.
At Clarence Town these Bible Study Growth Group meetings are held at the Manse (the Minister’s house next door to the Church) at 7:30pm every Tuesday night. It normally takes place in their lounge room but also relocates from time to time to the purpose-built training/ministry room to view short videos on the flat screen TV. As needed this group may meet in someone else’s house – or the Church building.
Supper is always provided during and after the Growth Groups. There are normally between 6-10 people attending this group.
