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.
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, LGBTIQ, 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!
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.
