Brunswick Uniting Church is a vibrant and diverse worshipping community of faith in Brunswick, Melbourne Australia.
We invite you to join us every Sunday Morning via live stream at 9:30am for worship!
Our doors are closed but our hearts are open and we remain committed to worshipping our steadfast loving God in community.
In the coming weeks and months we will be exploring fun and creative ways of worshipping together, in different places. We’ll be trying different approaches, different technology, different ways of leading and participating.
Please come with us on this journey as we experiment and learn together. If you have any ideas or feedback please contact Saide Cameron (email@example.com, 0407 096 743) or Rev. Ian Ferguson (0438 547 842).
We look forward to welcoming you to our worship space in person when the current crisis is passed. Find out how to get here.
We share our buildings with the Brunswick Indonesian Uniting Church.
Children and teenagers are a really important part of our community.
Music shapes the flow of our worship and enhances the sacred space.
We believe that worship is enriched when we engage all our senses, and so we welcome and value the contribution of a wide range of creative arts in worship.
We regularly observe these two defining symbolic rituals (sacraments) of the Christian faith.
We gather to share a simple meal of soup & bread and dessert of the fourth Sunday of the month, 6-7:30pm. The time is shaped by a liturgy that invites us to reflect on the week that has passed and to pray for each other.
The worship committee’s goals for 2020 are to:
- Offer worship every Sunday, for liturgical festivals and in response to the world
- Nurture new liturgists and prayer leaders
- Include, interact and engage with our young people in worship
- Explore age specific services through the year
- Offer multi sensory experiences during worship
- Ensure that diverse voices and representations are heard and seen in worship
- Explore daily practices of faith
Being an inclusive community
We seek to be a welcoming, open and inclusive congregation. Respect for each person’s individual experience of God is of the utmost importance as is the safety of children and vulnerable adults. We encourage and support the participation of people of all ages and abilities in the leadership of worship.
We are aware of the power of words to shape our world. Therefore we seek to use language that is inclusive of all, including a variety of images of God some of which will be feminine.
When reading the Bible during worship we use the New Revised Standard Version which uses inclusive language.
