A friendly church in the Adelaide Hills.
In-Person: You are welcome to attend our Sunday worship service in-person at 9.30am in the Chapel in Bridgewater.
On-line: We also offer our service live streamed online at the following link – Zoom Sunday Service.
We have members in the USA and Melbourne connecting each week by Zoom, as well as local hills or SA based participants.
Bridgewater Uniting Church is a community of belonging for everyone, embracing diversity and acceptance through our faith in Christ.
We grow in faith together through worship, spiritual guidance and sharing.
We connect with the community in relevant and meaningful ways.
We work for a better world.
You will find a safe and caring place here to belong, to learn, to question, to join in, and to make a difference in our community and in the world.
We welcome people from all walks and stages of life – multicultural, young and old, married and single, straight and gender diverse, families and individuals, in fact, anybody.
We believe that people are created to live in community with each other, and in relationship with God – Life is better together!
During our weekly services, children and young people are invited to participate in activities during school terms, and everyone gathers for conversation and refreshments after the service. People who follow our service online also have the opportunity to have a casual conversation with other online participants after the service has finished.
Open quiet Church each Tuesday Morning:
Bridgewater Uniting Church is open to the wider Bridgewater community each Tuesday morning for quiet reflection and contemplation. Come for just a few moments or stay a while. Light a candle, say a prayer, sit in silence, and enjoy the quiet. This is not a program or event but a space for peace and quiet for people of all faiths and none.
All welcome – 10am till 12noon.
We are located opposite the General Store and next to the steps and ramp up to Coles

Events this month:
Community Forum – Uluru Statement from the Heart
Monday 19th July – 7-9pm
Voice Treaty Truth
Join Parry Agius at Bridgewater Uniting Church and explore the meaning behind the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a profound call from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples for constitutional change and structural reform in their relationship with Australia. The Uluru Statement calls for three fundamental changes: Voice, Treaty, Truth.
The success of any future referendum on enshrining a First Nations Voice into the Constitution will depend on gaining the support of the majority of Australians, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal.
Attend free of charge; bookings essential. https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/statement-from-the-heart-tickets-157581036121
