We'd like to answer a few questions you might have as you decide to be our guest this Sunday at Maroochydore Presbyterian Church.
WHAT TIME ARE YOUR SERVICES?
We meet each Sunday at 9am for our Classic Church service, and 10:45am for our All Ages Contemporary Church service. Each service runs for one hour and is followed by morning tea.
How do I get there?
Our address is: 45 Okinja Road Alexandra Headland. You can get directions by clicking here.
HOW LONG ARE THE SERVICES?
Our services last about 60 minutes and contain music and teaching from the Bible that will apply directly to your life.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
Not really. Feel free to dress in clothes that are comfortable for you. Our contemporary service is generally more casual than our traditional service, but just think, 'What would I normally wear to a meal with friends?' You can 'dress up' if you want, or wear casual clothes. God is interested in your heart, not your wardrobe.
WILL I BE SINGLED OUT IF I'M NEW?
Absolutely not. You are our guest. Each Sunday, there are people just like you who are checking out Maroochydore Presbyterian Church for the first time. Our goal is for you to have the best experience possible. So you can feel free to be anonymous.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Maroochydore Presbyterian Church has a great Children's ministry where your kids will be taught the truth about Jesus. We are still developing our kid’s ministry but our goal is to make 10:45am church on Sunday the best hour of your kid's week.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT GOD?
At Maroochydore Presbyterian Church, we want to make your visit a good one - easy, straightforward, and uncomplicated. We are intentionally 'user-friendly' for people, no matter what their background - you don't have to have church 'figured out' to walk through our door.
WHAT DENOMINATION ARE YOU?
Maroochydore Presbyterian Church is a member church of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland. We are excited about sharing the riches of our gospel heritage with today's generation. We are a Christian Church focused on sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with our community, our city and our world.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IF I VISIT ON SUNDAY?
When you arrive at the 45 Okinja Road, where we meet, the first thing you'll probably notice is a 'Maroochydore Presbyterian Church’ sign on the street. Up the driveway and through the open gates you will find plenty of parking and green grass. Once parked you then head towards the main building where you'll likely find a friendly face to say hello and answer any questions you have.
Just before you enter the building you'll be given a “News Sheet” and encouraged to take a seat. In your seat you will see a white 'Connect Card.' Please fill out this card as it is a simple way for us to get better acquainted and let you know about things happening in the life of the church. At the end of the service the card can be placed in the “Connect Card” box at the main doors.
The one hour service usually begins with a welcome and some music led by our music team. We have a time of prayer, a bible reading and a talk which seeks to unpack and apply the Bible's message to us today. We also receive a collection from church members. As our guest please don’t feel that you have to contribute.
At the end of the service we'd love for you to stay and join us for a coffee and refreshments. It's the perfect time to us to get to know each other better, after all the Church exists to nurture our relationships with both God AND other people. God designed His Church to be a place where we can experience community and friendship, and we trust you will find genuine warmth and openness at Maroochydore Presbyterian Church.
That's about it. We hope you'll stop by this Sunday. And if you do, please be sure to introduce yourself.
If there's a question you have that we didn't cover, feel free to contact us.
45 Okinja Road, Alexandra Headland.
