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!

Church Council and Congregational meetings

The members of Church Council meet once a month and congregational meetings are held twice a year and when necessary to consider the more important facets of church life and the election of office bearers.

The members of Church Council are presently Marcus Lieneman (Chair), Andrea Tschoner (Secretary), Bruce Collins (Treasurer), Dawn Benjamin, Aafke Boomsma and Jayne LeVene.

Our Chair of Congregation is Peter Grear and our Secretary is Nicole Hams.

Coping with Covid

Our church has coped well with the difficulties presented by the Coronavirus pandemic. We were able to initiate live streaming of our Sunday services from the beginning of the lock down and have continued doing so.

This has provided most of our congregation with an interactive service, and has given several interstate families, and even friends from America, the opportunity to join us for worship.

Community Garden

The Bridgewater Uniting Church has used state government’s Fund My Neighbourhood grant funding to build a community garden behind our Oak Community Centre.

It is free for all members of the public to collect produce from.  It is open to the public anytime. 

The garden is maintained by a small volunteer group, and new volunteers are always very welcome.

Please come along, enjoy the sunshine, and collect some delicious, fresh, organic produce to take home!
