What’s On…

OUR BUILDINGS REMAIN * mostly * CLOSED

– we’ve gone * mostly * virtual –

13 January 2021 – WE’RE BACK!!!

Okay, we never went anywhere. But we will be having our first live in-person service on Sunday 31 January 2021 at 11am. There will be another service at 2:30 in Welsh, also live in-person.

COVID restrictions require that you pre-register. Please call or text your name to 0482-433-000 to pre-register. This number is not available for anything else; you may also let us know via email, or telling an Elder or Minister of course.

We will continue to post our services on YouTube accessible via Facebook and this website. Find us @melbwelshchurch on Facebook. Recorded services will be placed on the MEDIA page of this website. On Sundays that we are live, it will be live-streamed, mistakes and all. There will be opportunity for fellowship afterwards outside (we cannot get the limited capacity total of people in the church into the Sunday School hall, and outside is safe anyway).

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.

Virtual reality

We are on Facebook, and it is our primary means of communicating last minute changes and ‘advertising’ our Zoom events.

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. Please note that Covid Restrictions have severely changed how we have these events, and we are still working on this.

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.
