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.

Videos of messages for 28th June

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.

Greetings everyone.

With some recent easing of restrictions in South Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic we are getting closer to being able to meet again in person. In the meantime, we are continuing to post videos here each week.

For this Sunday, Pastor Grant is leading us in both communion and the message.

Greetings everyone.

As winter roars in on us here in South Australia, I trust that you are all keeping warm on the frosty nights and mornings of this last week. With the way that the restrictions are being modified, we may be able to soon meet together to worship once again.

The links to this week’s video messages are below. The first one features Steve Bown leading us in communion, and the second one is our guest speaker, Geoff Payne. Geoff is the CEO of Churches of Christ CareWorks here in SA.
