KPC began as a church plant in January 2006. We are a part of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland – a mainstream denomination.

We are a Bible teaching Church that seeks to grow followers of Jesus. We each aim to grow in knowing Jesus, grow in living for Jesus and grow in making Jesus known.

We encourage everyone to be actively involved in church, but there are also people that have been given particular roles.

We have volunteers who teach KPC Kids, lead Youth Group, run Growth Groups, play music, sing, take care of morning tea, organise dinner, setup for church, welcome… the list goes on and on.

As a Presbyterian Church we also have Ministers, Elders and a Committee of Management .


Minister: Steve Blencowe

Steve and Lyndel and their family helped start KPC and are keen to see more healthy, growing, Bible teaching churches across Brisbane. Before moving to Kenmore they served at Acacia Ridge Presbyterian Church – where Steve was the Assistant Minister. Steve trained for two years in the Ministry Training Strategy (at St. Matthias / UNSW) before completing four years at Moore College (and further study since). Steve is originally from Adelaide, grew up in Bangladesh, India, and Sydney but now calls Brisbane home! He was once an Engineer.

Assistant Minister: Stephen Young

Stephen Young is married to Annie and has two primary-aged children. He was trained as a candidate for the Presbyterian Ministry at Queensland Theological College; and graduated in 2022. He is now the Assistant Minister at Kenmore Presbyterian Church and, under God, aims to grow and mature KPC’s evening service and Youth Ministries. For many years he worked as a tax collector
(well, for the ATO) and completed an undergraduate degree in Games and Interactive Entertainment at QUT (2010). Occasionally, you might find him returning to these humble roots…

Student Ministers

Thom Herbert grew up attending KPC before moving to Cairns for work for several years. While away, he completed a ministry apprenticeship at Cairns Presyterian Church, and then moved back to Brisbane to continue training for ministry at Queensland Theological College in 2022. Toward the end of his first year of study he became a PCQ candidate. 

Thom and Alison married in 2022. Alison has also completed a ministry traineeship and will begin study at QTC in 2023. 

Andreas Mayer did a ministry apprenticeship with UQ Evangelical Students, and is now studying at QTC, with the hope of working in university ministry after he graduates.  He loves his wife Monique, board games, and helping non-Christians investigate Jesus for themselves so they can know and trust him.  He has a Lutheran background and is always up for chatting theology.

* Graduated – Rayk has graduated and begins Ministry at Manly-Lota Presbyterian Church on 4th August 2023.

Rayk Platzek, his wife Christin and their son joined KPC in 2021. Rayk will finish his studies at QTC in June 2023. He is a PCQ Candidate.


Rodney, Rob (Session Clerk), David, Steve (Minister/teaching Elder) and Riaan make up our Session (that is, our Elders).

Committee of Management

James, Ian, Annette, Meredith, Grant (not pictured), Libby (Secretary) and Keith (Treasurer) serve as our Committee of Management. They take care of financial and property matters.
