Worship is central to our life as a Church, and we live out our mission in many different ways.

As well as these formal worship times, the Church arranges many other activities that give social, sharing, serving or study opportunities.  We can experience the presence of God in these, too.  Our times of gathering together are designed to be as varied as possible.

You might like to join us in some of them. 

Dubbo's Mission Statement is:

Worshipping God, Following Jesus, Loving All

 

More details are available on the page "Our Mission"

We have wheelchair accessible buildings and hearing loops that operates in Wesley House and the Church.  There are also wheelchair accessible toilets.

WORSHIP

In the Dubbo Congregation there are two worship services each Sunday:

The 9.30am Service is all-age worship. 

The Wesley evening service at 7pm is a more reflective service

Sunday School  is held at 9.30am in Wesley House, following a short time in the morning worship service, and meets weekly expect for third Sunday, which is Band Sunday. Band Sunday the young people are involved in Worship. 

Sunday School is for children aged 3 years to Year 12 at school and  commences at 9.30 am in the church before moving to the hall.  Sunday School concludes at approximately 10.30 am and then all share in morning tea together. Contact the Church office for further information.

 

On Band Sunday people are invited to form a band and choir to lead the music in the worship service. This is usually held on the Third Sunday and Practice is held the day before to learn new music and refresh memories on previously learnt music.  If you would like to learn more about this event, please contact the Church Office.

Morning tea is served in Wesley House at the conclusion of the services.

There is a rural service monthly at Ballimore, held at 11am on the fourth Sunday of the month. This is faithfully attended.  Monthly services are also held at the Aged Care facilities, except during January.

Street Library is where you can come and get a book and put an another book in for more information  https://streetlibrary.org.au/library/dubbo-uniting-church-duc-street-library

A weekly Newsletter with details of current and future events is available at each worship service. Also available are copies of the magazine “Insights” produced by the NSW Synod.

    

We are committed to working with the other Churches in Dubbo and participate in joint activities from time to time. These include Ecumenical Services and training programmes.  Scripture in primary schools is also run on an ecumenical basis.  If you would like to assist with this in any way contact the Church Office.

 

The worship centres are represented on the Worship Mission Team, that discusses different ideas and determines format relating to worship.  People are invited to participate in many areas of the worship services eg stewards, prayers and bible reading segment, communion, technology and morning tea.  For further information contact the Church Office.

  

Our Bible Studies Programme covers a variety of needs - and we are always open to suggestions.    We have studies over some of the special Church seasons, like Lent, Easter and Advent.  There are also groups that run through the year, that address a range of topics, including our weekly Lectionary Cafe. Contact the Church Office for more information.

   

CHURCH OFFICE

The Church Office is located in the hall on the western side of the complex in Church St. Hours are 9.30am to 12.30pm Tuesday to Friday mornings,  and messages can be left on the answering machine.   Contact the office for hall bookings, funerals, baptism and wedding enquiries or as a contact point for other church activities.  Transport to and from Church Services or any other Church activity can also be arranged by contacting the Church Office.

 

Congregation members get together for many social events, the church fete, garage sales, gardening, working bees, organising Christmas gifts with Target and occasional meals at a local venue.  Some of our activities include a ladies' breakfast, small groups, and our yearly Pancake Morning Tea, etc.

 

The Pastoral Care Committee helps to co-ordinate wider ministry with older folk.  One aspect of this ministry is Extended Holy Communion - for those unable to come to church, whether at home, in hospital or other care. Contact the Church Office for more information. 

 

Banner Centre: A small group meets as necessary to make up banner kits, that are sent all over Australia.  A catalogue is available to anyone interested. Please contact the Church Office.

 

There are four Mission Teams involved in the life of the Church: Community Connections, Discipleship, Worship and Mission Support.

Feel free to speak to one of the representatives, or contact the Church Office.

 

A Bereavement Support Group plans and assists in the care of the bereaved.  Some members of the group are able to help in other situations of loss, which result in grief. For more information contact the Church Office.

 

The Catering Committee works on a volunteer basis to raise funds for the church and church-related activities by catering for functions. We always need helpers to cook at home or to attend functions to cater and serve. Another important dimension of this group's work is serving morning or afternoon teas after funerals. If you would like to help out, contact the Church Office.

 

 “Tea & Talk Fellowship” was formed when Tea & Talk joined with UCAF (Uniting Church Adult Fellowship) and they meet in the Jacaranda Room on the third Thursday of each month. This is a lunch to which everyone is invited (men & women), with activities including craft and games.
They m
eet from 11.00am - 1.00pm, with everyone invited to bring along lunch to share. Tea and coffee are provided. For more information contact the Church Office

Used Stamps are collected, trimmed and sent down to the Synod Office. Money raised from the sale of stamps is used for mission activities of the Church (last year over $23,000 was raised). 

 

Conversational English is held every Thursday during school term at 2:30pm in Wesley House. This is a time for conservation with people whom English is not their first language in order to improve their English. All are welcome to attend.

 

In July 2012 a labyrinth was added to the lawn at the front of the church and two seats were relocated from St Andrew's:

  • The Phyllis and Gordon Wilcox Memorial Seat is under the Jacaranda tree on the western side of the rose garden and looks out over the new labyrinth.

  • The UCAF seat is now located on the eastern side of the rose garden under a shady tree, just near the Alice Knudsen Memorial Seat.

 

  

GIVING & GROWING WITH GOD

Your giving to God through His Church

        

One of the privileges of belonging to a church Congregation is participating in its various activities at the local level and in the wider church.

 

One way we do this is through regular systematic giving. This Church has dated envelopes for this purpose and Direct Debit is another easy alternative available. By making such a commitment you are helping the Church to plan for the future, going forwards, not backwards.  Confidentiality is always maintained.

 

Since the birth of Christianity, believers have been called to be faithful stewards of their God given talents and resources.  We would encourage you to continue in this pattern.  If you would like envelopes or more information about Direct Debit options you could contact one of these people: Elaine Drummond, speak to one of the Ministry Team, or contact the Church Office.
