Bangalow - Byron Bay

Welcome to Byron Shire Uniting Churches 

The Byron Shire Uniting Churches are a collective of churches, led by Rev Phil Dokmanovic, that meet each week in Bangalow and Byron Bay.

Our Churches are a place where lives are changed through worship, learning, and community, and where people are empowered to change the world and make it a better place, following the example and teachings of Jesus.

Our congregations are dynamic, down-to-earth groups of people seeking spiritual nourishment, meaningful relationships, and ways to use their talents, skills, and knowledge to serve others.

We hope to meet you at worship, a special event, service project, or around the community!

We are back!!!

After 6 months of not gathering in our buildings for worship due to COVID-19, the Church Council of the Byron Shire Uniting Churches have decided that it is time to regather for worship in our buildings. Over recent months the Council has been preparing COVIDSafe plans and considering advice from our NSW/ACT Synod leaders as we have journeyed towards re-gathering. Due to the current protocols and requirements for public gatherings for worship, our gatherings will look and feel different to pre-COVID-19, so please familiarise yourself with the requirements before joining us in our buildings for gathered worship (these are included in this link).

For those not yet ready to return to gatherings in our buildings and for those who are ill or presenting with COVID-type symptoms, we will seek to continue to post a recording of weekly gatherings on our Facebook pages for you to access. Thank you for your patience and encouragement during this unusual season and we look forward to gathering together for worship in our buildings again. This information will be posted out to those who do not access online information, but feel free to share these details with those you connect with this week.

How does "Black Lives Matter" intersect with our faith?

Why is that we cannot stay silent on this issue?

EMBODY

A Fresh Expression Ministry at Brunswick Heads

*** NOW EVERY 1ST AND THIRD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH***

Greer will be facilitating a new ministry in the Bruns space that will be an intentional time for embodied spirituality. Using the InterPlay forms (no experience necessary), all who come will be invited to explore and play with their experience and expression of spirituality, in and through our bodies. We will dance, move, sing, voice, tell, and play, on our own and with others, not as performance but as process. This will be an intentionally open and inclusive space, celebrating diverse expressions of age, culture, sexuality, gender, physical-ability, denomination and faith. All are welcome!
