Bellbrae congregation 

The Bellbrae congregation meets in the Bellbrae Church on the corner of Anglesea Road and School Road.  The small village of Bellbrae nestles around the iconic surfing beach, Bells Beach.  Our church, sometimes called ‘The Church among the Pines’ is set in a pretty valley location on Spring Creek.


Our services are at 11 AM Sunday mornings.  You are very welcome to join with us.  We are a relatively small and very friendly congregation.  There is opportunity for a quality coffee or cup of tea after the service and most members stay for a chat.

We enjoy singing in our services and have a group of musicians who lead us.  These include a pianist, a cornet player and a violinist but they are a multi-talented group who often play other instruments including guitar, ukulele and flute.

Our minister, leads our service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month and we have communion on the first Sunday.  

On the 4th Sunday, we have a visiting preacher, sometimes a lay minister or one of the very eminent retired ministers in our region.  These selected leaders bring a range of wisdom and experience which we have found to enlighten and engage our members.

On the 2nd and 5th Sunday, our worship committee arranges and often leads our service.  This may involve lively and friendly discussion within the congregation across a range of topical issues.

We welcome visitors and have the pleasure often of attendance by club members holidaying at the Bellbrae Country Club.

Anzac Display at Bellbrae Church on 24 April 2016

What a grand display we had at Bellbrae Uniting Church on Sunday 24 April when we remembered those who had made sacrifices on our behalf during wars. Our displays reflected on relatives, friends and an unknown warrior. They had gone off to war when called upon by King or Queen and Country. There were photographs, medals, hats, tales and more.

Our exhibitors spoke briefly on what they had to share. Maxine talked about her father, Noel about his grandfather, John about his father, Bev about her father, Martin about his uncle and family, Carleen about a previously unknown warrior now known, Margaret about her father, Mike about living in London during WWII, Karleen with tears in her eyes about her sons, Shirley spoke about her time in war service. What a privilege it was to be present.

Many at our commemoration made comment and added to the significance and value of the moment. It was all too apparent, that most of those, who had seen service, had experienced turbulent times during the war and for all too many there were turbulent time after, as a result of what they had been through.

Almost as a postscript, I spoke to our muso John as we locked up only to learn that he had an uncle at Pearl Harbour.
Thanks to all….. Martin
