Who We Are
Welcome! Tablelands Presbyterian Church (TPC) is a community of Bible believing Christians seeking to serve God on the Atherton Tablelands.
We’re people from all sorts of different places, backgrounds, ages and cultures who seek to live each day in light of what God has done for us through Jesus. This means that we like to meet together in big and small groups, socially and formally; as well as pray for and encourage one another in day to day life.
What We Believe
We believe that everyone is in need of the loving kindness of God and that everyone is able to receive it! If this is something you’d like to learn more about, we suggest you check out this very simple explanation of what we believe: http://www.matthiasmedia.com.au/2wtl/
As a Bible believing church, make the Bible central to all we do. Why? Because it’s through the Bible that we get to meet Jesus and find out who God is and how he’s loved us.
As a member of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, we believe that the most thorough summary of what the Bible teaches us is the Westminster Confession of Faith. You can check it out here
“What is the chief end of man? Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” (from The Westminster Shorter Catechism)

Since COVID we haven't restarted Kid's Church yet, but invite the children to stay in the service with us, being involved in the weekly kids talk and having a new activity sheet to do each week.
