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 are now meeting via a WhatsApp group on Tuesday and Thursday at 9 amContact Richard Arnold on 0407 796 429 to join the WhatsApp group. Read more

Please note – this group is currently in recess.  

We gather to share a simple meal of soup & bread and dessert every second 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. Read more

The worship committee’s goals for 2020 are to:

  1. Offer worship every Sunday, for liturgical festivals and in response to the world
  2. Nurture new liturgists and prayer leaders
  3. Include, interact and engage with our young people in worship
  4. Explore age specific services through the year
  5. Offer multi sensory experiences during worship
  6. Ensure that diverse voices and representations are heard and seen in worship
  7. 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.
