God’s purpose throughout all of time has been to redeem for Himself a people that are His very own. – Alistair Begg

About Us

SYPC was established on this site in 1854 and has grown with Melbourne. We exist to glorify God by worshiping Him through His Son Jesus Christ in spirit and truth and doing all things for His glory.

SYPC is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Australia (PCA), founded in 1901, which embraces the teachings of historic, orthodox Christianity in the great biblical and evangelical tradition of the Protestant Reformation. (see Our Beliefs)

SYPC is a community of Christians of all ages, from different backgrounds and cultures, worshipping together and united in the belief that the Bible is the Word of God, and that its teachings have enduring relevance in today’s world.

The Bible reveals to us that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to reconcile the world to Himself. This is the gospel – the good news – of Jesus Christ, that God, through the work of His Son, has done for us what we could never have done for ourselves, and that by believing in Christ we might have new life through him.

To those who desire truth and reality, direction and meaning in their lives we say this: come, see and hear what great things the Lord can do; come and hear the voice of the living God as He speaks and applies truth by his Spirit through his Word.

Whatever your spiritual journey – or none – be assured of a very warm welcome in joining with us for worship of the true and living God at SYPC.
