Canterbury Presbyterian

Welcome to Canterbury Presbyterian Church (CPC).
We are a vibrant Christ-centred, Christ-proclaiming community representing many nations. We are committed to the reformed tradition, with a focus on the preaching of the Word of God and worship and fellowship on the Lord’s Day.


We are now meeting together in person for Sunday services. However, restrictions announced by the Victorian government over the New Year mean that masks are required to be worn for all gatherings.

During January, our services will continue to stream at 10:30 am each Sunday during January on our YouTube channel


Crèche room and Sunday School accessible during all morning services.
