Join us for Worship on Sunday

What to Expect

At Markethill Presbyterian Church and throughout all our ministries and community outreach we want to help make your first experience a special one. On this page and across our social platforms we hope that you find relevant information that will help you as you begin your fellowship at MPC.


Our staffed Crèche, for babies and infants, operates throughout the morning service. All children up to age 3 are welcome to come along with or without parents. Crèche is open to both visitors and members of the congregation.

Sunday Club (Junior Sunday School)

Children are welcome at our worship services. As part of our weekly service there is a children’s talk which is specifically geared towards the boys and girls. After this time in the service, children (4-9 years) are able to leave the main congregation to go to a special children’s worship time with their leaders. We are using ‘The Gospel Project’ materials in Sunday Club.
