Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during your church service?

When you arrive at church, you’ll be greeted by someone and given a notice sheet. During the service, we’ll sing songs together (don’t worry, you don’t have to sing if you don’t want to), be lead in prayer, and listen to the Bible read and explained. Our service runs for about an hour. After the service you’re invited to join us for morning tea in the undercover area behind the hall.

What if I don’t normally go to church?

That’s ok. You’re not the only one! Some have been part of churches since they were born, others used to be part of a church and only recently have come back, and for others, church is entirely new. We try our best to be welcoming to everyone, especially when it’s your first time, and to make everything we do clear.

We want Gympie Presbyterian Church to be a place where you can seek, wrestle, question, explore and grow.

What should I wear?

You can wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing. We all come to God as we are—he doesn’t accept us based on our looks or whether we’re ‘good enough’ for him.

You’ll see people wearing different styles of clothing at church. Some of the men wear ties, and some wear thongs. Some women wear dresses, and others shorts and a t-shirt.

How do I get to church?

We meet for church in the One Mile State School hall, McLeod Lane, Gympie. One Mile State School is near St Vinnies' Op Shop, the Gympie Regional Council works depo, and the One Mile Sporting Ovals.

Most people drive to church. Please get in touch if you need a lift.

Where do I park?

There’s plenty of parking along McLeod Lane and in the large school carpark off Phoenix Street.

Is there anything for kids?

During the school terms, we run Sunday School. We start the church service altogether, and at some point during the service, the kids leave for Sunday School. Sunday School is held in the undercover area behind the hall. During Sunday School kids are taught about Jesus from the Bible through stories, games, and craft. All our Sunday School teachers and helpers hold a valid Blue Card and receive training and accreditation according to the Presbyterian Church of Queensland’s Safe Ministry with Children policy
