ONLINE & LIVE ONSITE GATHERINGS
Online: 10am & 6pm Every Sunday
Each Sunday we will continue to provide online services at 10am and 6pm. During these digital gatherings we will sing, pray and hear God's word together.
Join us from home for these gatherings via our online platform:
Our online gatherings can also be viewed following the broadcast on our Church by the Bridge Youtube channel
Onsite: 8am, 10am, 4pm & 6pm Every Sunday in September
During September, we’d like to encourage you to make the most of Online Church from your home. We will also be offering onsite gatherings, with a mix of online and live content. Live elements will include preaching and Q&A sessions. Please join us at any of the following times/locations:
8am Neutral Bay
10am Kirribilli (with Kids)
4pm Neutral Bay (with Kids)
Onsite: October Onwards
From the first Sunday in October, we will resume gathering in our congregational groups with 4 onsite gatherings at each of our Kirribilli and Neutral Bay locations as follows:
Kirribilli 8am, 10am (with Kids), 5pm & 7pm
Neutral Bay 8am, 10am (with Kids), 4pm (with Kids) & 6pm
These gatherings will involve a live MC, live Bible reading, live prayer, live encouragement, a live band (that we can hum along to!) and live preaching.
All our onsite gatherings will follow government and diocesan guidelines – so we will be appropriately socially distanced, with the wearing of masks strongly recommended. Due to social distancing requirements, gatherings will be available to limited numbers (50 in each church & 50 in an overflow room at each site - note that the 50 overflow will be for kids at gatherings with Kids Church). QR codes will also be used for check-in for contact tracing purposes if necessary.
For those still choosing to do online church from home, this will continue at 10am & 6pm via our online platform:
KIDS CHURCH DURING ONLINE GATHERINGS
While you enjoy virtual church, we also have the opportunity for your pre-school and primary aged children, to be involved in Online Kids Church, via our online platform. Click the “Kids” link to join in with bible teaching, singing along (words and actions included!), playing games, learning memory verses and activities to do at home. If you’d like to do this with them after church instead, Kids Online will also be available on our YouTube channel.
KIDS CHURCH DURING ONSITE GATHERINGS
During September Kids Church will be available at 10am Kirribilli & 4pm Neutral Bay.
From October Kids Church will be available at 10am Kirribilli, 10am Neutral Bay & 4pm Neutral Bay.
MIDWEEK PRAYER BOOK SERVICE
With online church being more contemporary in style, there’s an opportunity to join us for a more traditional prayer book service with liturgy and hymns every Wednesday 11-1145am, on Zoom. Virtually gather to sing hymns, enjoying the richness of the prayerbook liturgy and sit under God’s Word. If you’d like to join us, the zoom link is us02web.zoom.us/j/84934774100. We can also then add you to our distribution list to receive the service booklet each week.
Everyone is searching for answers to the big questions of life. If you have questions, are exploring the Christian faith, returning to God, or just needing a refresher on the basics of Christianity, then we would like to invite you to join us in Exploring God.
The Alpha and Christianity Explored courses give you time and space to think about life's big questions, and to explore the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ. During this season, all our courses will be held through 'Zoom'. You won’t be asked to pray, sing or read aloud, and you can ask any questions you like, or you can just listen in. More information can be found on our website here.
From Term 4 2020, Playtime will take place LIVE on Thursdays only at Church by the Bridge, 10:00 am - 11:30 am. Due to COVID-19, we will be changing our normal routine to keep everyone safe and healthy! We will have a maximum number of 50 people allowed on site for Playtime, so ask you to pre-register each week to avoid showing up with your child and being disappointed if we are already full!
For more information, please see our Playtime page.
Friday Nights 7.00pm
For our high school youth, we launched Ignite Online.
Ignite TV is outrageously fun. We dare you not to have a good time watching it, but at the same time it is deeply insightful and gospel-centred. There's banter, skits, good music and really accessible bible talks that meet a teenager where they’re at with God, no matter where that might be.
From June 5th 2020, our youth group is starting to meet again in person on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons (with appropriate restrictions in place).
ONLINE PRAYER MEETINGS
7.30pm (AEST) 1st Wednesday of the Month
On the 1st Wednesday evening of each month, we’d love you to join our church family for our Zoom Central Prayer meeting. We are totally dependent on the Lord in all things - and in this unique season we need to prayer even more fervently.
We spend time together reading and reflecting on God’s word, praying altogether and in small groups. We sometimes even try singing together over zoom!
Click here to contact us for the Zoom details if you're keen to join in.
Gather with us to commit our service, our hearts, the needs of our church and world to God in prayer. A short gathering taking place 30 minutes prior to our online services. All welcome. 9.30-9.45am or 5.30-5.45pm. Zoom link here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89907198956
Your generosity in partnering with us as we seek to live like Jesus, love like Jesus and see his name go out to our community and beyond is so appreciated.Click here to support our work
