Welcome

 

Welcome to Murrumbeena Uniting Church

It’s really important to us that you feel welcome when you visit us here on line and when you visit us face to face.

Here are Murrumbeena Uniting Church we are a mix of ages and backgrounds, traditions and cultures. Some of us have been here for years and some of us are fairly new. Some of us grew up in church going families and some of us didn’t. Some of us know a bit about God, Jesus and the Bible and some of us don’t. Some of us probably don’t know why we keep coming – is it the music? The food? The company? The chance to hear more about God’s amazing love for us? We’re not too sure. But what we do know is, as a church community in this place and at this time, we are trying to love God more, trying to look after each other better and to be a better presence in the community around us.

We try and do this through our mission statement: “To make Christ known through preaching the gospel in word and deed.” So welcome – we look forward to meeting you!

Sunday Worship

10am every week
5.30pm 1st and 3rd Sunday evening of the month

We meet in the church for about an hour to listen, sing, hear from the Bible, pray for our world, and think about how we can make a difference. We meet at 10am on Sunday mornings to share in intergenerational and creative worship.  Sometimes we use video clips and drama or puppets. Worship is open for all, young or old, new or seasoned.  Sunday morning worship hopefully feeds and challenges us as we head out to be God’s people in the world today.

Children & Families Ministry

Our children’s program is for all below the age of 12! At Murrumbeena we believe that children are a vital part of any church family. At Murrumbeena we hope that your child’s faith grows and that their foundation is built on Christ’s love.

 

 

Youth Ministry

Our Youth Ministry at Murrumbeena is open to all from year 7 to University.  We usually gather for Youth Group on a Friday night and in conjunction with the Sonder Collective there are opportunities for camps, Bible study as well as social events.  At Murrumbeena we believe that we are all part of God’s family and that the opportunities to learn about God and form those initial relationships always have a place at in our youth ministry.

Young Adult Ministry

Here at Murrumbeena our Young Adults Ministry is thriving with a fantastic group of young adults.  We meet for social events, Bible study and shared meals, worship on either a Sunday morning at 10am or as part of the Sonder Collective on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings at 5.30pm, as well as camps and other opportunities as they arise.

Word of Washing

Well this week we’ve jumped a bit in our reading of John and find ourselves in chapter 9.  Some of the signs we’ve missed are the healing of the official’s son, the healing of the paralysed man at the pool, Jesus feeding the 5000 men, Jesus walking on water, questions...

To be Known is to be Loved

This week’s reading is the ‘Woman at the well’.  It is a much loved reading and leads itself into many creative interpretations.  Today we will listen to being read, see it being performed, experience it being danced and be part of different ways of presenting this...
