FAMILY WORSHIP SERVICE

Sunday @ 9:00am 

The apostle Paul described true WORSHIP perfectly. (Romans 12:1-2):

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercies, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

This passage contains all the elements of our worship.

  • ·        WHAT IS WORSHIP?       

We are motivated to worship by God’s mercies, (that is everything He has given us that we don’t deserve: eternal love, eternal grace, the Holy Spirit, everlasting peace, eternal joy, saving faith, comfort, strength, wisdom, hope, patience, kindness, honour, glory, righteousness, eternal life, forgiveness, justification, and much more.) The knowledge and understanding of these incredible gifts motivate us to pour forth praise and thanksgiving—in other words, worship!       

  • ·        HOW DO WE WORSHIP?

We “present our bodies as living and holy sacrifice”. Presenting our bodies means giving God all of ourselves - our hearts, minds, hands, thoughts, attitudes.       

  • ·        HOW DO WE RENEW OUR MINDS?

There is only one way to renew our minds, and that is by the Word of God. God is the truth! To know the truth, to believe the truth, will naturally result in true spiritual worship.

  •  ·        MUSIC IS AN EXPRESSION OF OUR WORSHIP!     

Music can’t produce worship, although it certainly can produce emotion. Music is not the origin of worship, but it can be the expression of it. We look to music as simply an expression of that which is induced by a heart that is rapt by the mercies of God and obedient to His commands.           

  • ·        TRUE WORSHIP IS GOD-CENTERED WORSHIP!    

Jesus tells us that true worshipers will worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). This means we worship from the heart and the way God has designed. Worship can include praying, reading God's Word with an open heart, singing, participating in communion, and serving others. It is done properly when the heart and attitude of the person are in the right place.

Our worship is the acknowledgment of God and all His power and glory in everything we do. "The highest form of praise and worship is obedience to Him and His Word. To do this, we must know God; we cannot be ignorant of Him" (Acts 17:23).

Worship is to glorify and exalt God…..

to show our loyalty and admiration to our Father.

We would love YOU to come and join us!

Guadalcanal Partnership

Our congregation seeks to reach out in love to the people of the Beenleigh region and beyond. We recognise that Christ’s call to “love our neighbours” is not restricted to our immediate vicinity, but includes all people regionally, nationally and internationally.

In reaching out in love, we seek to engage in God’s work of justice and compassion right across the world.

In 2012, with the aid of UnitingWorld, we established a partnership with the Guadalcanal Circuit from the United Church of the Solomon Islands. This circuit is made up of a number of remote congregations on the island of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands.

Some of the components this relationship have involved include;

  • Hosting a key leader or married couple from the Guadalcanal Circuit by BRUC for a short period each year
  • Groups from BRUC having short visits to the various villages of the Guadalcanal Circuit on an annual basis
  • Relationship building with women through pen friend letter writing
  • Providing financial support for Ministry Training in the Guadalcanal Circuit

Messy Church...

Messy Church @ BRUC

Messy Church @ BRUC is church for families... It is a creative and different way to experience and learn about GOD. It is held monthly, and includes hands-on creative experiences, a celebration and a meal. It does not prioritise either the needs of children or adults but intentionally welcomes and provides for all ages.

Messy Church is Christ-centred and available and welcoming to all ages. There is a strong emphasis on hospitality from the invitation, the welcome at the door, the knowing of people’s names, the offer of conversation and drinks to sharing worship and a meal for all. 

The celebration is an invitation to worship through craft, song, prayers and story. Creativity in many forms is encouraged, nurtured and explored by people of all ages, together.

Due to COVID restrictions, attendance is presently limited and registration essential. If you would like to find out more, please email bruc2@bruc.net.au and a team member will get back to you as soon as possible.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Not sure what to say in times of sadness or ill health?



"Shawls ... made for centuries universal and embracing,

symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God.

They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace,

mother, hug, shelter and beautify.

Those who have received these shawls have been 

uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to 

fly above their troubles..."

 

 Written in 1998 by: Janet Severi Bristow Copyright ©2018

 

In 1998, Janet Severi Bristow and Victoria Galo, two graduates of the 1997 Women's Leadership Institute at The Hartford Seminary in Connecticut gave birth to a ministry as a result of their experience in this program of applied Feminist Spirituality.

Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every stitch.


The shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way. Some recipients have continued the kindness by making a shawl and passing it onto someone in need. Thus, the blessing ripples from person-to-person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, mothering God!

 

 

Some uses for the shawl...

The uses for the shawls are many; undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marriage ceremonies; birthing, nursing a baby; or just socializing..

.there are endless possibilities!


Call the Church Office (07) 3807 5969 if you would like to discuss more in regards to this area of ministry.

Men's Breakfast

Men's Breakfast is a time of gathering for the men at BRUC, where they can gather together in fellowship with each other , as well as meet some interesting guests.

WE always have a guest speaker as well as a local speaker from the BRUC. The event starts at 7:00am with a very delicious breakfast cooked for us ( and we don't even have to do the dishes). After this, the speakers bring us some insightful memories from areas such as - their childhood, family, work- to name but a few. They both speak ful about 20 minutes and they are always interesting to listen to. We try to conclude by 9:00am.

Come and join us - the More the Merrier
