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.

Welcome again, everyone.

Another week has passed and we are still not able to meet together physically for worship as one. However, it certainly looks like that it is getting closer with every new announcement regarding the easing of restrictions.

In the meantime, we continue to post here on our website the links to our weekly communion talk as well as a sermon.

Videos of messages for 7th June

Greetings to everyone accessing the messages for 7th June 2020 at the Murray Bridge Church of Christ, South Australia.

I trust that you are continuing to be blessed by God each day as you follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour – despite the strange and difficult times in which we live.

I encourage you all to use your days wisely by reading and meditating upon God”s Word – His Living Word – the Bible. I would also like to encourage you to spend time in fellowship and prayer with the Creator of this wonderful world on which we live. Let us take our eyes off of the troubles of this world and “fix our eyes on the Author and Perfecter of our faith.”

Here are the links to the messages for today.
