WHO WE ARE

We are a family of churches seeking to walk in the way of Jesus in Springwood, Winmalee and throughout the Blue Mountains. Jesus said of himself: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In walking the way of Jesus, we walk together into the life Jesus offers in relationship with the God revealed in the Bible as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In 1895 the sandstone church was built in Springwood. Jesus’ people, from a Presbyterian heritage, began to meet there. In subsequent years, Presbyterian church meetings commenced in various locations throughout the Blue Mountains including Woodford, Glenbrook, and Blaxland. In 1992, the church building in Winmalee was constructed on Hawkesbury Road.

But we don’t believe churches are buildings. So we don’t go to church. Churches are people – people who are disciples of Jesus, bound together in all our diversity by God’s love. We belong to God and to one another. We value faithfulness and vulnerability. We celebrate and lament. We immerse ourselves in the Bible and we pray. We participate in God’s mission to forgive, reconcile and renew people and all things throughout the world he loves so much. And being in the Presbyterian heritage, we celebrate the grace and goodness of God every day. There is so much for which to be thankful!
