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, abled and differently-abled, families and individuals.

We believe that people are created to live in community with each other, and in relationship with God – Life is better together!

 


Easter Services

Easter Sunday 21st April was a celebration event.

Our Good Friday service on 19th April was a reflective time with the opportunity during the service to move around to a number of thought provoking stations.

On Wednesday evening 17th April we held a short Taize style service to pray, sing, reflect and light candles.  

Our Palm Sunday service on 14th April was a combined service with the Bridgewater Anglican Church.  The service commenced at the Anglican church and then we walked with our branches down the road to the Uniting Church before having the rest of the service.


Arts Centre Concert – Sunday 14th April 2019

Another great concert has just been held with the folk singing duo Ordinary Elephant.

BIO
International Folk Music Awards 2017 Artist of the Year.  The nomadic husband and wife duo captivate listeners with their well-honed combination of insightful writing, effortless harmonies and intertwined clawhammer banjo and guitar. Pete’s understated, melodic and mellow banjo weaves through Crystal’s steady and clean rhythm guitar, with poetic lyrics purposefully delivered in rich harmony, “like their voices were made to go together” – Texas Music Journal.


Arts Centre Concert – Saturday 6th April 2019

Nice Verdes were a very talented couple, described by some as Indie World Troubadours – Drawing from the sounds of Cuba, Africa, Colombia and more to create their own style of Rootsy Highlife.

Subtle Bricks Theatre Company has been performing sketches in Churches in South Australia for around 23 years. Their purpose in this is twofold: to make people think, and to make people laugh!


Looking Back Looking Forward – 90th Anniversary Celebrations – 3rd Feb

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 was opened on Saturday 24th November 2018. See more details and photos here.

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!

Part of the growing garden – as at 19th April 2019
