Maleny Presbyterian Church Mission

The Mission


Worshipping God is a life of obedience and calling. This worship is expressed in a corporate sense as we meet together under God’s word and lift our hearts and voices in praise as well as within our families and personally. The Maleny Presbyterian Church ministry seeks to be a joyful worshipping community. Prayer, praise, unity and fellowship are at the heart of our worshipping Hinterland community.

The Mission


The teaching of God’s word is at the heart of Maleny Presbyterian Church ministry both formally and informally. A practical, challenging, biblical teaching ministry is a cornerstone of this church and sits deep in our Reformed heritage. Small groups, seminars and conferences will challenge us to grow in our understanding of God and His word.

The Mission


Jesus came to seek and save the lost and at the Maleny Presbyterian Church we aim to be a church that reaches out. We hope to be the sort of church that Christians will be excited about bringing their friends to, and where many will discover their faith for the first time. But we shall not wait for the lost to come to us…but rather go out into the world and make disciples where they are.

The Mission


A church is called to be a caring community. We become the church God has called us to be through building networks of fellowship & support with and for each other, by caring for one another in practical ways, and in reaching out to a needy world to provide the care and love of Jesus.

Maleny Presbyterian Church Mission


The Session of Elders met to discuss the rapid rate at which the government is ramping up policies of containment for Covid-19 Virus. Physical separation is the key to flattening out the timeline of virus exposure and so with this in mind, the Session of Elders are cancelling all activities of the Maleny Presbyterian Church for the foreseeable future…resumption of which to be reviewed at a later date.
This means that Sunday services
will be cancelled in the Church Hall until further notice.
…so don’t bother showing up.
We will set up worship services for each Sunday and post live services on FaceBook at 9:00 am each Sabbath Day. I will also seek to post it on our FaceBook page for you to view in total. The sermon will be included, but will also be in its usual place in the Sermons area on this website. We encourage you to tune in and join us…and yes even sing the songs we find for you. Take notes on the sermon and let the Spirit of God feed your soul. Plan to be online.
Our Bible Study this Wednesday night is running a little late…will start at 7:30pm hopefully.
Come and join us here: 

MPC Wednesday Night Bible Study & Prayer Notes – 1 July 2020


Prov. 6:6

            Go to the ant, you sluggard;

                        consider its ways and be wise!

7           It has no commander,

                        no overseer or ruler,

8           yet it stores its provisions in summer

                        and gathers its food at harvest.

Prov. 20:4

            Sluggards do not plow in season;

                        so at harvest time they look but find nothing.

Prov. 21:25

            The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him,

                        because his hands refuse to work.

26         All day long he craves for more,

                        but the righteous give without sparing.

Prov. 22:13

            The sluggard says, “There’s a lion outside!

                        I’ll be killed in the public square!”

Prov. 20:13

            Do not love sleep or you will grow poor;

                        stay awake and you will have food to spare.

Prov. 26:14

            As a door turns on its hinges,

                        so a sluggard turns on his bed.

Prov. 12:27

            The lazy do not roast any game,

                        but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

Prov. 19:24

            A sluggard buries his hand in the dish;

                        he will not even bring it back to his mouth!

Prov. 10:26

            As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,

                        so are sluggards to those who send them.

Prov. 24:30

            I went past the field of a sluggard,

                        past the vineyard of someone who has no sense;

31         thorns had come up everywhere,

                        the ground was covered with weeds,

                        and the stone wall was in ruins.

32         I applied my heart to what I observed 

                        and learned a lesson from what I saw:

33         A little sleep, a little slumber,

                        a little folding of the hands to rest—

34         and poverty will come on you like a thief 

                        and scarcity like an armed man.

Prov. 23:29

  Who has woe? Who has sorrow?

                        Who has strife? Who has complaints?

                        Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes?

30         Those who linger over wine,

                        who go to sample bowls of mixed wine.

31         Do not gaze at wine when it is red,

                        when it sparkles in the cup,

                        when it goes down smoothly!

32         In the end it bites like a snake 

                        and poisons like a viper.

33         Your eyes will see strange sights,

                        and your mind will imagine confusing things.

34         You will be like one sleeping on the high seas,

                        lying on top of the rigging.

35         “They hit me,” you will say, “but I’m not hurt!

                        They beat me, but I don’t feel it!

            When will I wake up 

                        so I can find another drink?”

Prov. 23:19

  Listen, my son, and be wise,

                        and set your heart on the right path:

20         Do not join those who drink too much wine

                        or gorge themselves on meat,

21         for drunkards and gluttons become poor,

                        and drowsiness clothes them in rags.

Prov. 31:6

            Let beer be for those who are perishing,

                        wine for those who are in anguish!

7           Let them drink and forget their poverty 

                        and remember their misery no more.

Prov. 12:11

            Those who work their land will have abundant food,

                        but those who chase fantasies have no sense.

Prov. 28:19

            Those who work their land will have abundant food,

                        but those who chase fantasies will have their fill of poverty.

Prov. 14:23

            All hard work brings a profit,

                        but mere talk leads only to poverty.

Prov. 10:4

            Lazy hands make for poverty,

                        but diligent hands bring wealth.

5           He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son,

                        but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.

Prov. 13:4

            A sluggard’s appetite is never filled,

                        but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.

Prov. 15:19

            The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,

                        but the path of the upright is a highway.

Prov. 22:29

  Do you see someone skilled in their work?

                        They will serve before kings;

                        they will not serve before officials of low rank.

Prov. 24:27

            Put your outdoor work in order 

                        and get your fields ready;

                        after that, build your house.

Prov. 27:23

            Be sure you know the condition of your flocks,

                        give careful attention to your herds;

24         for riches do not endure forever,

                        and a crown is not secure for all generations.

25         When the hay is removed and new growth appears 

                        and the grass from the hills is gathered in,

26         the lambs will provide you with clothing,

                        and the goats with the price of a field.

27         You will have plenty of goats’ milk to feed your family 

                        and to nourish your female servants.

Prov. 27:18

            The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit,

                        and whoever protects their master will be honored.

Prov. 16:26

            The appetite of laborers works for them;

                        their hunger drives them on.

Prov. 19:15

            Laziness brings on deep sleep,

                        and the shiftless go hungry.

Mark 2:27

            Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

Our Sunday morning services start at 9:00 a.m. as we worship together with the Creator of the universe in the Spirit of his Christ.  

Afterward, we stick around for a cuppa and some food.  Join us!  

While many of our parents prefer to keep their children in the Service of Worship,
if given notice we can cater for a Sunday School for school-age kids if needed...
during the service with adults who are holding an approved Blue Card for Child Safe.
