Plan Your Visit
What to expect
If you’ve never stepped foot in a church before, or you’ve attended a church your whole life, you’re very welcome at The Bridge Church. We understand that visiting somewhere new can be a bit nerve-racking, so we’d like to help you learn more about what happens when you visit us over the weekend.
If you’ve been coming to our church for a while and would like to know more about who we are and what it looks like to be involved here, please Sign up to a Belonging Course. There is no expectation that you have to join our church afterwards.
Our gatherings include 8am traditional Anglican services at Kirribilli and Neutral Bay, our all ages contemporary services with kids church and creche programs are 10am at Kirribilli, 10 and 4pm at Neutral Bay, and 10.30am at Macquarie Park. We have evening services at 5pm and 7pm at Kirribilli and 6pm at Neutral Bay which are also all ages, contemporary services.

What happens during the service?
Each week the order may change, but there are some common parts to all of our church services. There is a time of singing (you can listen to some of the songs we sing on Spotify). We hear the Bible read and preached (the sermon is a talk lasting for no more than 30 minutes). Someone leads the church in a time of prayer to God.
This might be unfamiliar to you and that’s ok – you’re welcome to just listen in, and nothing is expected of you – see the next point!
What participation is required?
We want you to feel welcome to come and listen in, without fear of being asked to do anything you’re uncomfortable with. You can leave whenever you like, and while you can remain as anonymous as you want to be, we encourage you to introduce yourself to us – we’d love to meet you.
Are children welcome?
Absolutely – church is for people of all ages and stages. Kids Church takes place during four of our services on Sundays – 10am Kirribilli, 10am and 4pm Neutral Bay and 10.30 Macquarie Park. There is also a creche and a room for mothers to feed their babies.
Kids and adults join us at the start of the service, and then the children go to Kids Church about 20 minutes in. At Kids Church, children are well cared for by trained leaders, who have received child protection qualifications. You are of course welcome to sit in during Kids Church and watch what happens.
