Welcome

The Evangelical Presbyterian Church seeks, by God's grace to be faithful to the Bible. Here, we believe, God had spoken. We confess the Bible to be divinely inspired and infallible. In an age when when man has so much to say and thinks so highly of his own opinion, we believe that God is the One we need to hear.

The central message of the Bible is that whilst man is God's creature and was originally made perfect, in God's image and likeness, he rebelled against God and has become God's enemy. The tragic consequence is that all men are born in a state of sin. We are all of us sinners before God and are subject to his wrath and face the punishment for our sin in eternal damnation. Yet, wonderfully, God has made a way of salvation. A way whereby sin can be justly dealt with. God has brought this about through his Son, Jesus Christ, who though eternally God, was made man. He lived his life in perfect obedience but was put to death in the stead of sinners. It is through Jesus Christ alone that man can be made right with God.

As a Presbyterian Church we hold the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms as our subordinate standards. These we accept as being founded on and agreeable to the Word of God. In seeking to maintain a position of confessional integrity we believe in the necessity of Church discipline and therefore require all holding office to subscribe without reservation to the Confession and Catechisms. Members of our Presbytery are required to renew their subscription annually.

Sunday Afternoons in Heidelberg

Stacks Image 1231

What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than to focus on the essential elements of the Christian faith and where better to do it than by learning The Heidelberg Catechism.

The name is taken from the place of the catechism’s origin, the German city of Heidelberg. The catechism is largely a commentary on three things; the Apostle’s Creed, the Ten Commandments and The Lord’s Prayer.

In the current church age when much confusion abounds about the true nature of the Christian faith, the Heidelberg Catechism centres on the one essential truth, we are great sinners and Jesus Christ is a great Saviour.
Over the next 52 Sundays we present the questions and answers.

Are you ready for the challenge?


Q38 Why did he suffer “under Pontius Pilate” as judge?

A. So that he, though innocent, might be condemned by an earthly judge, and so free us from the severe judgment of God that was to fall on us.
