10am & 6pm Every Sunday
Each Sunday we gather for our online services at 10am and 6pm (AEDT). During these digital gatherings we will sing, pray and hear God's word together. Our online platform also has features like live chat, so you can engage with others, and the opportunity to request prayer from one of our pastors as you worship. From 28th June, our Online Sunday gatherings are also now Closed Captioned, to particularly improve accessibility for those living with hearing impairment.
You can join us for these gatherings at our online platform:
Our online gatherings can also be viewed following the broadcast on our Church by the Bridge Youtube channel
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” tab 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.
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.
BELONGING COURSE ONLINE
Belonging is a course that gives you an introduction into getting involved in our church family and what it means to be a member. We would love to see you 'virtually' at the Online Belonging course or intensive.

CONNECT GROUPS ONLINE
We still want to stay connected with each other midweek, to study the bible and pray. Our Connect small groups (usually 8-10 people) are still meeting together via video conference to support each other. If you’d like to join one of these groups, click here to give us your details and we’ll be in touch.
Monday and Thursday 10am
Every week we will air a new episode of Virtual Playtime for ages 0-5 (& their parents/carers), via our bayandbridge.online.church platform or anytime on Church by the Bridge YouTube. Each week we sing together, share a story, create a craft, have a community spot with Playtime families and have a lot of fun! It’s an easy way to invite non-church families to join us by sharing these links.
Friday Nights 7.30pm
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), but if you would prefer, you can still tune in on Friday nights 7:30pm at bayandbridge.online.church.

Another Kind of Love
Another Kind of Love is our evolution of the Living Single Conference previously hosted at Church by the Bridge. This year, we will be hosting a series of four TED-style talks, over four consecutive Thursday evenings, hearing from guest speakers and our own members with Another Kind of perspective on reclaiming and embracing love.

Register here and we’ll send you the Zoom link. Why not get together with some friends in someone's home? We'll open the Zoom from 7pm, so you can chat with others.
