What’s On…

OUR BUILDINGS REMAIN CLOSED

– we’ve gone virtual –

3 August 2020: We are all processing the new Stage 4 restrictions, and staying within 5km of home means that the team will be changing filming and services yet again. Not to worry, we’ll figure it out. If you need to talk to someone, we’re available, please just reach out and we’ll do the same. Reach out to each other. Know you are loved enough that we will keep the doors closed until we can gather again. We WILL be back.

We will be posting our services via Facebook and this website. Find us @melbwelshchurch on Facebook. Recorded services will be placed on the MEDIA page of this website

Sundays 11 am : English language service. We offer Communion on the first Sunday of every month at this service.

On the second and last Sunday of the month we hold a Welsh language service at 2:30pm. Te bach (tea) will resume once we re-open our doors.

last Sundays: Ecumenical Lutheran service 5pm. We offer Communion at this service.

Needless to say everyone is welcome to all our services. We have an open communion table at the Melbourne Welsh Church and all are invited to partake in the service. If you have any questions please contact the ministry team.

Everyone (and we mean EVERYONE) is welcome.

Virtual reality

It is our hope to keep our families and friends safe during this strange stretch. As such, the Elders have decided that it is most prudent to close the buildings and suspend gatherings.

That said – we have some ideas. Hopefully they’ll pan out well, even with the learning curve. We will use Facebook a lot, like our training wheels, as we learn how to navigate virtual reality. We’ll check in daily, we’ll still have Bible Fellowship, we may even have some new things. We want to hear from you, it’s a two way street, but we ARE church. This community is strong and resilient and we’ve got this.

If you need to hear from a minister or Elder, please drop us a note or let us know.


Gymanfa Ganu

At least twice a year we hold a Gymanfa Ganu (a singing festival), a service of song in which we sing hymns to the Glory of God in both English and Welsh. To find out when our next Gymanfa Ganu is please see the up coming events page.

Were not perfect

The above information changes very rarely. We try to keep up and get the important stuff front and center, however that occasionally does not happen.

For changes, or adjustments to the calendar, please see the calendar on the right or the up coming events page.
