Pastoral Care meeting

The pastoral care group meets every Tuesday morning at 9 am in Pastor Grant’s office. The group prays for those in need and will visit as needed. Do not hesitate to contact Pastor Grant if you have a particular need.


The church bookshop is a vital part of our church ministry. Come in if you are looking for that special card for someone you love. The shop also has a wide variety of books, DVDs, gifts and other helpful materials. Talk to the staff volunteers for help in choosing just the right item.

Opening hours:
Wednesday: 9:30 am – 4 pm
Friday: 9:30 am – 4 pm.

Church services to recommence

Welcome Back!

Greetings Everyone.

With the State Government easing Covid-19 restrictions even further last Monday the elders decided earlier this week that we as the community of faith that is the Murray Bridge Church of Christ can once again meet for worship:

 Starting this Sunday, the 5th July at 10.00 a.m.

Please note the following:

1. Please sanitise your hands once having said “Hello” to the greeters and before passing through the double glass doors.

2. In the middle foyer please have your name ticked off as being present. This is a government requirement in case any tracing of suspect virus carriers is needed to be done.

3. There will be an offering receptacle available for those wishing to give.

4. Social distancing – In the chapel area, couples and families can sit together but there must be a chair space between each family group.

5. Communion will be served with the bread being passed first and then the cup. There is space for the helpers to pass between rows to minimize unnecessary tray contact.

6. At the end of the service, THERE WILL BE NO MORNING TEA. (It is hoped that this rule will be dropped very soon.)

7. If anyone is feeling unwell, or is uneasy about attending please stay home. We understand your position and it’s ok.

Your cooperation with these arrangements will be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday.
