Welcome Message from Minister
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for clicking on to the Scots Presbyterian church West Footscray website. We hope that the information we have provided will be able to satisfy your hunger and thirst for an inspiring worship on Sundays and other special worships.
My name is Richard Jeganathan and I am the Pastor of this Church. This is my fifth year as the spiritual leader and I hold a degree in ministries. I did my theological studies at the Presbyterian Theological College, Box Hill North, Victoria, Australia.
The first two words in our Church name Scots Presbyterian reminds us to stand in the heritage of the reformation that took place in the 16th century in Europe. This reformation grew to great prominence in Scotland, through the leadership of John Knox one of Britain's great reformers". We truly enjoy our reformed worship which means that we are very biblical.
Our Sunday worship is at 10am and the Sunday school for the children is at 9.15 am . After the worship around 11 am we also have a fellowship time over a cup of tea or coffee.
The good news that our church gives out is the importance of Jesus Christ in our lives and for our eternal life. Our faith in him gives us forgiveness of sins and makes us righteous in Jesus. So we have peace with God, again because of our faithful relationship with Jesus. He has made us acceptable to God who sees us as not sinners as before but as people who do the right things again because of Jesus. Therefore we have a bright future and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. And this is one of the most important blessings of the gospel and that is why we preach Jesus Christ as the good news.
We also encourage members to be fruitful. Jesus wants us first to be faithful and then bear the fruits that he gives us. He enables us with his gifts and gives us different ministries to build up the church spiritually because Jesus has entrusted his church to us. He will reward us when comes us again.
We are a warm bunch of believers of Christ at West Footscray and we extend a loving invitation to you to join us in our worship of our creator and provider, the almighty God. For further information please surf through the different headings. Join us for an inspiring worship.
