SERVICES

We meet for worship service every Sunday morning at 10.30am.

Music is a key component of our services.  Communion is held on the third Sunday of each month, and is followed by a lunch where people bring a plate of food to share.

New people are encouraged to come along and meet the friendly members of this hospitality-focused congregation.

WE ARE THE UNITING CHURCH

The Uniting Church SA seeks to be an innovative, growing church proclaiming Jesus Christ, empowered by the Spirit to transform God’s world. Read More.

The Uniting Church is a young church – formed on 22 June 1977, when the Congregational, Methodist, and Presbyterian Churches united to become one. The Basis of Union is the document which affirms our Christian faith and is the guide to what is central to the life of the Uniting Church in Australia. Read the Basis of Union here.

HISTORY

Worship services have been held in the Broadview area for many years. The roots of this Uniting Church congregation can be traced back to services held at the former Rechabite Hall in Broadview. These services were moved to the current Broadview Uniting Church site in 1964 when the building there was completed. The church’s spacious hall is a more recent addition to the site.

Music has been, and continues to be, an important aspect of the Broadview Uniting Church congregation’s worshipping life. Currently a piano and pipe organ assist with providing music on Sunday mornings.
