Our story

Drummoyne Presbyterian Church is a community of ordinary people who, together, are discovering what it means to know Jesus and live his way through the transforming love of God.

The Inner West of Sydney is one of the most unchurched parts of Australia. At Drummoyne Presbyterian, we live in the midst of a significant mission field. We long and pray for God to use us more effectively to reach people in the Inner West with the good news about Jesus, and be a church where people do not simply come to Christ, but are being equipped to be useful for the Kingdom whether they stay here or eventually leave us.

Drummoyne Presbyterian Church was planted in the 1880s when Drummoyne was a new housing estate on the edge of a growing young city. Meeting first in the pub on the corner of Lyons Rd & Victoria Rd (now known as The Oxford Hotel) it was known as a church that was committed to the gospel and faithfully taught the Scriptures.

A lot's happened down the years. In 2000 the area was undergoing significant renewal with the primary demographic changing from an elderly population to young professional city workers. At the same time Drummoyne Presbyterian underwent significant renewal. Alongside the existing 9am congregation a new congregation commenced at 10:30am catering for young families. Then, in 2006 the 5:00pm congregation started meeting.

From small beginings, we have watched God do great things…

Our experience at Drummoyne Presbyterian since 2001 is that 25 to 45 year old mobile professionals are not just the rapidly growing demographic in the Inner West, but many are in the midst of life change (work, new city, marriage, becoming parents) and are thinking about life’s big questions, and are willing to give the gospel a hearing.

With more and more families choosing to live in the Inner West, we are also a church with a growing population of youth, from babies through to late teens. 

So, whatever your age, if you are interested in finding out more about us, please come along to one of our church meetings. We'd love to see you there.
