Frederickton is a rural village on the river north of Kempsey.  The bypass of the Pacific Highway has provided a tranquil setting for families and retirees.

Macleay River Congregation meets in three centres at Crescent Head, Frederickton and Kempsey.  We are a Lay-Led Congregation who seek to discern God’s will as we worship and witness in the Macleay Valley.  Our overseas mission includes supporting The Samaritans Operation Christmas Child Appeal.

Coronavirus impacts

Currently there are no physical worship or other gatherings.  We still connect in other ways.

Resources on how to handle this pandemic are available on the National Assembly and NSW/ACT Synod websites.
