Presbytery of Loddon Mallee

The Loddon-Mallee Presbytery is situated in central and northern Victoria, from Castlemaine in the south, extending right up north in a wedge past Mildura.

On this webpage you should find all our current Executive and contact numbers.

However, we also have an unofficial webpage which you will find updated at least weekly and which has poetry and art by Rev Ken Rookes and other gleaned reflections on the lectionary as well as news on what is happening in our Presbytery. It is called ‘The River of Life’ and is located at

Our region is made up of distinct communities. We seek to understand the special needs of small rural communities and larger provincial towns. Our congregations are diverse. We recognise God’s creative hand at work and the presbytery is committed to encouraging each expression of God’s activity in the gathered community.

Our presbytery standing committee works towards assisting and enhancing the priorities of presbytery and developing the mission of the church in each congregation. In our presbytery the standing committee fulfils the functions of Mission, Education, Pastoral Care and oversite and administration.

The Presbytery Ministers and Secretary offer gifts of pastoral care, administration, mission development and oversight, thereby assisting our mission.
