Church Coffee Shop re-opens

Over recent months the Church of Christ Coffee Shop has been closed due the restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people have missed the opportunity to meet in the coffee shop for a coffee, cup of tea or a meal.

We are pleased to announce that from 10th June 2020 – that’s tomorrow – the coffee shop will re-open but with some restrictions.

Coffee Shop hours: Wednesday – Friday each week from 10 am – 2 pm.

Restriction: only 20 people at a time.

Please book ahead by ringing our manager, Chris Bown on 0402 081 039.

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.

Christian Bookshop re-opens

Our church’s bookshop has been closed over the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people have been waiting patiently for the restrictions to change so that we can re-open this vital and much loved ministry of our church.

Bookshop reopening

We are pleased to announce that the Murray Bridge Church of Christ Bookshop will re-open from Wednesday 3rd June 2020 at 9:30 am.

Please note that for the time being that our bookshop will only open on Wednesday each week, from 9:30 am to 4 pm. This is due to a lack of volunteers to help serve customers.

If you are in a position to volunteer for a few hours week to serve in this way, please speak to Pastor Grant Spangenberg on 8532 2883. (Please note that we would expect volunteers to be in regular fellowship in a Christian church in the Murray Bridge area.)

Greetings everyone.

I trust that you are all well and ready for the onslaught of winter. The weather forecast looks like we will have a good taste of winter this coming week.

Keep warm, keep dry, and above all – keep safe. And when you can’t get out into the garden or go for a walk due to the weather, spend more time in God’s Word, or in prayer. Our world certainly needs our prayers.

Here are the links to David’s Communion talk, and to Pastor Grant’s message entitled ‘Pentecost Power.’

Greetings to everyone accessing our messages for this Sunday. How the weather has changed this last week, from beautiful autumnal sunshine to cold winds, cloud cover and misty rain. It is lovely to hear the raindrops on our roofs.

Praise God for the raindrops filling our tanks, watering our gardens and bringing soaking showers for the farmers in our district.

Greetings again, everyone. I trust that you are enjoying our wonderful autumnal weather at present.

As we continue to move through this season of worshipping in a different way, may you all know God’s rich blessings as we share in Communion together in our homes, and as we hear a message from God’s word.

For communion today we will be lead by Graham Nancarrow, and today’s sermon is brought to you by Greg Woolner.

Video messages for May 10th

It has been encouraging to hear the news this past week that restrictions in our movements in society are starting to be relaxed – here in South Australia at least.

I am sure that all of you watching these messages are looking forward to that day when we can once again worship our Lord Jesus Christ together in person. I am sure that we will have a great deal for which to praise Him.

MOTHER’S DAY

Today is the special day in our calendar when we especially acknowledge our mothers, with a special focus on their important role in our lives. Pastor Grant’s message today will have a focus on mothers.

Pastor Grant will also be leading us around the Lord’s Table of Remembrance (Communion).

Prepare to take communion and the click on the images below to watch the videos.

Videos of messages for 3rd May

As we continue to worship in isolation from each other we are continuing to provide two messages for every Sunday. The first one is to help you to observe communion at home and is led by Trevor Purdie this week. He has asked that you watch a video of a favourite hymn before watching his message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-dEfvz6Vms

Please prepare before viewing some juice and some bread or biscuit.

The second message is from Pastor Grant and is based on his Bible reading for this Sunday.
