我們的歷史

1998年,一群雪梨華人長老會(Chinese Presbyterian Church, Sydney, CPC)的粵語會眾奉派到寶活區建立教會分堂,採取與西人長老會聖雅各堂(St James Presbyterian Church)合夥模式,傳揚福音,造就信徒。

1999年,蒙主恩眷,分堂已能夠自立,並在獲得母堂的祝福後,復經區會和總會批准,命名為「寶活華人長老會」。

2004年,由於人數大增,寶活場地不敷應用,經多方祈禱尋求,於會友大會通過覓地建堂大工。

2010年,新堂於力勤建成,改名為天恩華人長老會。

2011年,教會改為「一會二址」模式,除力勤會址外,寶活會址繼續舉行聚會,名為「寶活崇拜中心」。

2012年,「寶活崇拜中心」為發揮較大自主、彈性管理和發展空間,向區會及總會申請自立。

2013年,申請得到批准,正式自立並改名為「華人長老會寶活堂」。

2014年,開始普通話崇拜。

A brief history of us:

In 1998, a group of members of the Chinese Presbyterian Church, Sydney (CPC) were sent on a mission to set up a branch in Burwood.  In partnership with the St James Presbyterian Church a Cantonese branch was accordingly planted in Burwood.

In 1999, by God’s grace and with the blessings of CPC and the Presbytery, the branch became independent and was named Burwood Chinese Presbyterian Church.

In 2004, the Burwood premise struggled to accommodate the rising numbers and through prayers, it was agreed in the Annual General Meeting to seek a new church premise.

In 2010, the new church premise in Lidcombe was completed and the Church was renamed GracePoint Chinese Presbyterian Church.

In 2011, the Church adopted the model of “One Church Two sites” whereas the Burwood premise became Burwood Worship Centre and continued to hold services.

In 2012, in order to have more independence and flexibility in development and management, Burwood Worship Centre lodged application to the Presbytery to become an independent church.

In 2013, the application was approved by the Presbytery and the Centre was renamed Chinese Presbyterian Church Burwood.

In 2014, Mandarin services were started.
