Easter Dawn service at Lake BonneyEaster dawn service at Lake Bonney

On Easter Day we join with other local congregations for a dawn service on the shore of Lake Bonney. In 2023  about 80 people shared in the dawn service at the amphitheatre near the football club.

Visitors staying at the nearby Barmera Caravan Park (or anywhere else in the Riverland) are very welcome to join us.

The service is followed by a simple free breakfast (bread, fish and juice) on the lake front. In 2024 the service will begin at 7.15am (Sunday 31 March)

See our Facebook page for more of what’s happening at Barmera Uniting Church.

Our Focus

We’re keen to support, be involved with, and reach out to our local community with the good news about Jesus.  Some of the ways we are doing that include:

Christmas Cafe

The church welcomes the community to the church hall for a cuppa and bbq tea on the day of the Barmera Christmas pageant. It’s an ideal spot to meet with friends while waiting for the fireworks (Barmera has fabulous fireworks!) at the town oval opposite the church.Guest enjoy a meal and a chat at the Christmas Cafe

This year the church hall will be open for bbq tea from 5pm – 9.30pm on the second Friday in December (13 December 2024). This is the day of the Barmera Christmas Pageant (Vintage cars 6.15pm, Pageant 6.30pm). Fireworks on the town oval at 9pm.

So call in for a coffee, or bbq meal, or just come to listen to Christmas carols played by Riverland Brass.

Philippines PartnershipLubuagan church

Since 2019 our congregation has been building a partnership with the UCCP (United Church of Christ in the Philippines) congregation in Lubuagan in Northern Luzon. Lubuagan is in a rural, mountainous area. The church was established in the 1920s and is associated with Kalinga Academy, a Christian secondary school adjacent to the church.
