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!
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.
