‘Connecting people to God’ is our core mission – even though we cannot, for the moment, meet together in person. We are committed to helping everyone maintain (and perhaps deepen) their relationship with the God of Comfort and Hope at this time.
Weekly worship resources
- We will be publishing and sending out weekly worship resources (linked to the Revised Common Lectionary and season) so that those who wish can all ‘share’ in devotions ‘together’ each week.
(It might be fun to call someone and chat about the week’s worship; read together; pray together…)
- Resources will be on the Coronavirus page of our website (www.bathurstunitingchurch.com.au).
They can also be emailed to you – or delivered on a USB-drive or DVD. Please let us know IF you’d like resources and HOW – by email to BUCconnect@gmail.com (or phone us, if you don’t use a computer!)
