Services

Friday Worship Service

1:15pm Worship Service

Our lunch time service gives the opportunity for city workers, visitors and others to join us for a traditional service to worship and praise God.  We celebrate Holy Communion weekly at this service.

Holy Communion is a special ritual or sacrament whereby a meal of bread and wine / juice is shared among believers. We practice what is called an “open table”. This means that even though we recognise that traditionally this meal is understood as a sacrament for those who are baptised, in the Uniting Church all are invited to participate, and it is up to each individual how they respond. If you prefer to watch this part of the service, that is fine.

Sunday Worship Service

9am Worship Service

Our 9am Worship Service is a family friendly traditional service with children invited to join in with the Sunday School activities. Alternatively there are activity sheets for the children to do while sitting with you. Following our worship service please join us for morning tea and fellowship. On the first Sunday of the month we celebrate Holy Communion. Come and join us on any Sunday.

We'll love to meet you!

Sunday Worship Service

11am Worship Service


Our mid morning service will often include a baptismal service welcoming a new person into the family of God. On other Sundays we celebrate Holy Communion. You are most welcome to join us on any Sunday.

Both Sunday services give people the opportunity to donate money to the work of the church in what is called an “offering”.  It is up to you whether you choose to give any money to the Church to help it pay for those everyday things like electricity, water and telephones as well as mission activities such as Community Meal, pastoral care and other related community support activities.

The Servant Network

The Servant Network was created in 2004 to provide practical support for people experiencing homelessness and isolation. The Servant Network supports the work of Art from the Margins and Community Meal.

Art from the Margins

Art from the Margins (AFTM) is a not-for-profit visual arts program providing disadvantaged artists with art mentoring, professional development, practical art classes and the opportunity to exhibit work through prominent public showcases.

The idea was born in a Brisbane park beside a coffee van when a member of the Albert Street Uniting Church’s Servant Network was talking with an artist living in isolation. The artist spoke about the challenges facing artists living with disadvantage when they try to display their work in a public space or participate in the wider arts community.
Members can support the work of Art from the Margins by volunteering their time or donations of art supplies/ funds towards the purchase of.

Community Meal

Community Meal has been serving people who find themselves in times of hardship since 2005, and runs each Wednesday night in Fortitude Valley.

The free meal provides a vital lifeline for more than 80 marginalised people and offers them a nutritious, three-course, hot meal. Supported by The Servant Network, the service aims to assist people experiencing disadvantage, many of whom are facing the challenges of social isolation. It’s an opportunity for people to engage with others, eat some healthy food and feel part of the wider Brisbane community.

Members can volunteer to assist serve the meals on Wednesday evenings on a regular basis or donate funds towards the cost of the meal.
