Our Heart

Find our what makes us tick, and what we dream for the future

Important

In response to COVID-19, our regular services have paused for the time being. We’re gathering as Church Online, and we’d love you to join us there. Please contact the office for more information: office@bac.org.au or 9831-5454.

We would love to welcome you as our guest at any of our services.
Although each of our services have a slightly different feel – in formality, musical style and average age of attendees – all our services welcome people of every age and preference, so please feel free to join us at the time you prefer.

Here is what you can expect if you plan to visit us (when services resume):

8am Traditional Service

We are thankful for our Anglican heritage and its traditions.
At this service, the minister wears robes and we enjoy traditional hymns.
We typically celebrate Holy Communion on the first, third and fourth Sundays of the month, with Morning Prayer on the second Sunday.
We use services from both An Australian Prayer Book and Common Prayer.
We share together in morning tea after the service.

Arriving 5-10 minutes before the service will give you time to come in and find a seat in the auditorium.

You’ll find the entrance to our carpark on Orallo Ave. There are plenty of spaces available to park your car here, or on the neighbouring streets.
Entry to the church building is directly through the carpark – just head towards the large glass doors and into our foyer.

Upon entering the building, our greeters will welcome you and provide you with a name-tag (you can politely decline if you would like). All of our regular attenders wear one, and it’s a great way to help us get to know each other.

From the foyer, you can enter into the auditorium through the rear doors. As you enter, you will be provided with a Bible, a prayer book (if required) and a copy of our weekly newsletter. The newsletter contains important information for our members, and you may find it a useful glimpse into the life of our church. You may then take a seat in the auditorium anywhere you feel comfortable.

The service runs for about 1 hour.

A typical service includes the following elements:

  • The Ministers and Warden will appear on the stage, and the congregation stands.
  • We begin by singing our first hymn; (if you  don’t feel comfortable singing, or don’t know the hymns, you can just stand with us and observe);
  • Following the prayer book, we read the daily verses of Scripture, and praying a Prayer of Preparation and the Collect for the day.
  • We hear the Bible read from two passages: the text for the sermon, and a Gospel reading;
  • We stand together as we declare what we believe in the words of a common creed;
  • We hear the Bible passage explained and applied to our lives (usually around 25 mins;
  • We sing a second hymn;
  • We will hear a short update from one of the ministry areas of our church;
  • We participate in Holy Communion;
  • We conclude with a final hymn, before heading out to morning tea.

You are free to wear whatever feels comfortable for you – there is no particular dress code. Those who typically attend this service range in dress from a shirt & tie to rather casual wear.

10am All Age Service

We love the joy that kids bring to families. Our 10am service is family-friendly, and has a contemporary feel with modern music, led by a small band.
We believe it’s important for kids to see their parents engage in church life. As such, during the first 20 minutes of the service kids participate with their families as they join in singing, hearing the Bible read, a short kids talk, and have the opportunity to share in the Lord’s Supper once a month. After this time, kids up to Year 6 head out to their own learning program with our specialised team of teachers.
Children under school age can join our creche program from 9:55am.

After the service, adults and kids share in morning tea together. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy conversation over a tea or coffee.

Arriving 5-10 minutes before the service will give you time to come in and find a seat in the auditorium.

You’ll find the entrance to our carpark on Orallo Ave. There are plenty of spaces available to park your car here, or on the neighbouring streets.
Entry to the church building is directly through the carpark – just head towards the large glass doors and into our foyer.

Upon entering the building, our greeters will welcome you and provide you with a name-tag (you can politely decline if you would like). All of our regular attenders wear one, and it’s a great way to help us get to know each other.
If you have children not yet at school, and you would like them to join our creche program, one of our greeters can assist you.

From the foyer, you can enter into the auditorium through the rear doors. As you enter, you will be provided with a Bible and a copy of our weekly newsletter. The newsletter contains important information for our members, and you may find it a useful glimpse into the life of our church. You may then take a seat in the auditorium anywhere you feel comfortable.

The service runs for about 1 hour 15 mins.

A typical service includes the following elements:

  • We begin the service with our band leading us in singing a number of songs (if you  don’t feel comfortable singing, you can just stand with us and observe);
  • We will say either a prayer of confession or a Christian creed together (words appear on the screen);
  • We will hear a short update from one of the ministry areas of our church;
  • We hear the Bible read, often by a child;
  • We hear a short Kid’s Spot;
  • We pray for our kids as they head out to their program (your kids are welcome to join in our kids program, but if you’d rather they stay with you, that’s fine too) ;
  • We hear a few short notices;
  • A member of the church will lead a time of prayer;
  • We sing a couple more songs;
  • We hear a second Bible reading,
  • We hear this reading explained and applied to our lives (usually around 25 mins);
  • We finish with one more song before heading out to morning tea.

If you have small children who become unsettled, we have a family-room available (including a baby change table) at the rear-right of the building, should you wish to use it. You can still see and hear everything happening in the service from this room. If you need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask.

You are free to wear whatever feels comfortable for you – there is no particular dress code. Those who typically attend this service are dressed across the spectrum from collared shirts, to shorts and t-shirts. Whatever you wear, you needn’t worry about standing out from the crowd.
