Welcome to the website of the Presbytery of Port Phillip West!
These pages introduce who we are, how we work and how we can help you – and invite you to get involved.

Brief overview of the Presbytery

Our Presbytery covers a large part of the north and west of Melbourne, through Geelong as far as Lorne in the southwest and up to the Macedon Ranges in the north. It includes more than 70 congregations, schools and agencies. We are very diverse: large and small, city and country, single and multi-cultural, traditional and experimental.

For a great overview of our Presbytery, watch this video.  It was made in 2014, but it still gives a pretty good feel for what we’re doing.

For further details about who we are and how we work, use the menu on the left to explore this website. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, please contact us by phone or email and ask!

Our mission strategy

In 2014 we adopted a 3-year strategy to encourage mission growth and transformation, both within and beyond existing congregations. After reviewing our progress, we are now well into our Regenerating the Church: 2021 Strategy. There’s so much happening around this strategy that we have a whole separate Regenerating the Church website, full of information, videos and other resources that we also invite you to check out!
