Cultivating Life in our Neighbourhood
NEW TO CHURCH?
Here's what you can expect from one of our Sunday services:
People start to arrive from about 15 minutes before the service.
You will be welcomed at the entrance by some of our volunteers. They will give you a service booklet and be able to answer any questions you might have.
Services last for 60-70 minutes and include singing, prayer, Bible reading, a sermon, and community updates. Once a month, we share communion together during the service and sometimes there are baptisms.
The sermons are based on Bible passages and themes that are usually grouped in series. We are privileged to have a team of experienced preachers across both congregations. In the first half of 2024 our sermon seris are:
January 7 to March 17 – Have a Greater Righteousness: The Sermon on the Mount
April and May - Love and Faith: John's first letter
June - Faithfulness and Suffering: The Book of Job
Throughout the year we will hear from speakers on issues of justice such as: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander justice, climate justice, and global poverty.
Occasionally we incorporate more creative forms of worship that help us to engage with the teaching ideas and worship with all our senses.
After the service, tea and coffee and a light morning tea are served and there is time to chat and get to know people within the community.
We'd love for you to join us for a Sunday service at 10am at Clifton Hill or 11am at Fairfield.
At Merri Creek Anglican a Kids’ Program meets at the same time as the Sunday Service. During an early part of the Service, usually during a song, parents may bring their children to the library upstairs. There are two aged-based groups:
(1) pre-school (age 1-5 yrs)
(2) school age (prep to Grade 6) .
During group time, kids explore themes of Bible teaching in fun and interactive ways.

Merri Creek Anglican is involved with the Inner North Youth Group.
Bringing together youth from multiple different congregations, Inner North Youth group is a Christian youth group that meets at St John's West Brunswick on Friday nights for fun, food and activities to help young people grow in their faith in Jesus. On Sunday mornings, youth meet with our great youth leaders after the sermon to talk about what they heard.
