Considering the health and safety of CPC staff, members and visitors we recommend wearing a mask when indoors and when social distancing is not possible outdoors
Whether you are looking for a spiritual home, transiting through Sydney, or just visiting, we sincerely welcome you.
Our congregation is largely ethnic Chinese. However there is a cultural diversity ranging from third generation Australian to those who have newly arrived in Australia. English, Cantonese and Mandarin are used in our church, with English as the common language. Although we are a Chinese Church, we warmly welcome people of all ethnic backgrounds.
While we are Presbyterian in terms of the governing structure and the Reformed doctrine, we extend fellowship to all who accept the Bible as the Word of God and the highest authority for their beliefs and practices.
We are not just a collection of individual or family units participating in some regular activities. We are a community of Christ, and a spiritual family committed to each other, jointly partaking of the Great Commission given by Christ.
Christmas is just round the corner and 2023 is less than one month away. Have you made any plans for the coming year? Please mark your calendar for Sunday June 11, 2023, as it is a very special day for CPC.
It will be our church’s 130th Anniversary next year. It is a joyous occasion when we reflect and give thanks to God for His faithfulness to CPC. It is also a time for us to reunite and celebrate with brothers and sisters who attended CPC in the past. The celebration will include an afternoon service on June 11 at a concert hall at Chatswood followed, by dinner at a nearby restaurant.
There will be much for us to be thankful for throughout the long history of CPC especially in the way that God has carried us through the last few years, with the prevalence of the Covid pandemic. God has been faithful to us at CPC in order that we may fulfill His will and purposes for us and others whom we are called to serve. Therefore, the Lord will be glorified.
Just to share some highlights of the 100th Church Anniversary 30 years ago: more than 1700 people gathered at Town Hall; celebration banquets at two Chinese restaurants in Chinatown; a church history book commemorating 100 years of CPC; a leather bookmark for all participants. Some of us still have fond memories of the anniversary and keep that bookmark.
Please speak with Agnes Chiu or me if you have any suggestions on how we may give thanks to God at the anniversary this time. Please also pray for the committees as we prepare and plan the program for the day.
