No. 313 - The East Launceston Southern Presbyterian Church

The Southern Presbyterian Church is a small denomination that is exclusive to Tasmania with approximately 130 members. There are only two congregations; one at East Launceston and the other at Glenorchy. The church was formed in 1986 after it broke away from the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, which was founded in Launceston in 1961. 

The church in East Launceston was built in 1969 for the Apostolic Church of Australia. It later relocated to Invermay.

Worship in the Southern Presbyterian Church is characterised by preaching, prayer and the unaccompanied singing of Psalms. The Southern Presbyterian Church's beliefs and practises are loosely aligned with the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Australia, the Presbyterian Church of Eastern Australia and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

    1. Hi Thomas. I have no idea. There is very little freely available information on the modern churches. The city council would probably have a record.
