Just a note that daylight savings concludes this weekend.

Worship on Sundays
Following the announcement of new restrictions on gatherings all parts of the liturgy for Palm Sunday, 5th April, onwards (and until further notice) will be pre-recorded. The videos will be compiled and then available for worship. The worship committee will meet to discuss this format on 22nd April. You can access the service by searching Brunswick Uniting Church on YouTube or access it directly via this link.
Praying through and preparing for Holy Week
We invite you to join us for prayer during Holy Week. To prepare we invite you to set aside a sacred space for the week. This might be a corner, by a window, a table, inside or outside. Place a Bible and a cross in the space – if you don’t have a cross available you might like to make one. Decorate the space with the liturgical colour for each day:
- Palm Sunday – purple or red
- Monday through to Maundy Thursday – purple
- Good Friday & Holy Saturday – black
- Easter Day – white
If you have big pieces of cloth in these colours you might also like to hang them from a window or fence that faces the street, letting your neighbourhood know that this is a sacred time.
Prayer will be offered at 10am from Monday to Wednesday and Holy Saturday, posted to the BUC Facebook group and our YouTube channel.
Worship service details are available as listed below together with information about what your need to gather to prepare for each service – these posts will be updated as required closer to the day of the service. We invite yo to have a Bible in your space for worship. The full order of service for each service will uploaded to support engagement with the streamed service.
