Carlingford Presbyterian Church

Our minister

Ben Ho, Associate Minister at Carlingford and Wentworthville Presbyterian Church

Carlingford Presbyterian Church's Associate Minister, Ben Ho grew up in a family that wasn’t Christian. At university, his friend invited him to read the Bible together, and Ben was amazed by God’s initiative and sacrifice in fixing Ben’s broken relationship with God, through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Since then, Ben’s been keen to have others come to appreciate God’s tenacious love in Jesus and to stand firm in it. Ben is married to Cherie, and God has entrusted them with three children: Joshua, Naomi and Timothy. Ben has a love / hate relationship with exercise, drinks neither tea nor coffee, and enjoys reading an engaging novel for relaxation.


What We Do

Community

Home groups are smaller communities of people from our church who meet at each other's homes to study and discuss the Bible, and pray for one another. It's a time to ask questions, share life and encourage one another. We have groups on Wednesday & Thursday nights in Carlingford and North Rocks.

Women & Men

Our church regularly runs both social and training events for men and women to gather together to encourage one another and learn from God's word.

Kids

At our 10am service, we spend the first half of the meeting together in the main school hall. Then we have a short break while kids go off to Kids' Church. At Kids' Church, children enjoy singing, playing and learning about Jesus while their parents listen to the preaching of God's Word. 


Carlingford: Our sunday services

Carlingford Presbyterian Church

When you come to CPC, you'll find a group of ordinary people from all walks of life. During church we read the Bible, pray, sing and hear a talk. We are excited about Jesus and being his people, and want to help each other live for Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Our services normally go for about an hour, and are quite casual. We welcome you to join in or just sit back and observe - it's up to you!

It's okay if you haven't been to church much before. We'll try to make it clear what's going on, and you won't need to say or do anything you don't want to. If you have questions on a Sunday, please feel free to ask them to the person leading the meeting or the preacher over morning tea in the hall after the meeting. Remember, we love to talk about Jesus so feel free to pepper us with your questions!

At all our meetings, we gather together because we are convinced that God has revealed Himself to us through the Bible and He continues to speak in the words of the Bible. With this Word of God, we teach and encourage each other to trust God to save us and make us like His dear son, Jesus. This means that during our meeting we read the Bible together and hear it preached, usually by our minister. We pray to God together and sing the truth about Jesus to each other.

Our meeting place is wheelchair accessible.

Our two Sunday services are held in the main school hall of Roselea Primary School:

10am: A warm, family gathering with people of all ages, with kids activities, followed by morning tea.

6pm: A casual and contemporary gathering. Join us for dinner at Carlingford Court after church on the first Sunday of each month.
