Come, Worship With Us 

We have returned to worship as a community in our church, and would be pleased to welcome you. If you would like to join us on zoom, please contact us through email address below. Alternatively, you can worship at your own time on Sunday, using the provided Order of Service and Sermon.

Worship is at the heart of Christian community; worship in contemporary language that is joyful, relevant and reflects the long traditions of the church. We embrace both traditional and new ways and times of worship.

Please be aware that our worship service is open to all.  Face masks are not mandatory but may be worn, if you wish.  (click here to view our COVID-19 policy)

Examine & Coffee- Wednesday 2pm

This informal midweek service examines the text and examines ourselvesre through conversation about the day’s scripture and prayers. Come and join us.  This is a great way to begin the day or connect with God in the midst of a busy week.  Our gathering is often via Zoom and sometimes in person.  Either method allows us to enjoy coffee or tea and a friendly chat afterwards.

Our MInister will happily provide you with details and materials for use each week.   minister@highfieldroadcanterburyuc.org.au
