A Confessional Reformed Congregation

Preaching Christ and Him crucified

About Us

By the grace of God, Hunter Presbyterian Church was organised, as a congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia since 1865. Our congregation is located in the Greater Newcastle area, in both Raymond Terrace and Cardiff. We are a congregation that seeks to faithfully preserve the Scriptural integrity and biblical truths rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, in worship, life and practice, to the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only King of the Church. Our congregation comprised of families from different parts of the Hunter region in Australia.

Our Aims

As a fellowship of those who love the Lord Jesus, we come together to worship Him, we study the Bible to learn more about him and we seek to make Him known to others. Briefly, our worship is simple, Biblical, and Christ-centred.

  • Preaching is Christ-centred, experiential and a careful exposition of Scripture.
  • Fellowship is warm and genuine with each person made welcome and all encouraged to build one another up in the things of God.
  • Belief is the historic Christian Reformed Faith.

We warmly invite you to join us in our worship services

We believe that the Word of God, the Bible, directs us as to how God is to be worshiped. The reading and preaching of the Word of God are at the heart of the worship of God. What is not of divine appointment is excluded, on Scriptural principles. Therefore, we refrain from the use of musical instruments and hymns of mere human composition. Because the Psalms only are divinely appointed to be used in praising God, we employ them only in the praise portion of our worship. In this we follow the practice of the early church, rediscovered at the time of the Reformation. We do not use set forms of worship or liturgies, because they lack Scriptural authority.

For the biblical doctrine concerning the regulative principle of worship, a video sermon on the 2nd Commandment can be found: Here

Our Congregation currently has two places of worship on the Lord’s day, and they are in Raymond Terrace and Cardiff.
