New to Albert Street Uniting Church

Web_congregation
Welcome to the Albert Street Uniting Church!

We would love you to join us for one or more of our weekly worship services.

Where are we?
Located on the corner of Albert and Ann Street, Brisbane, the easiest street address for your GPS is 140 Ann Street, Brisbane as Albert Street is split by King George Square and the Queen Street Mall.

Where to park?
As we are an inner city church, on-street parking is very limited. The closest car park is King George Square carpark. (As at October 2017 parking rates were $5 for after 4.30pm weekdays and on weekends).

Can I get there by public transport?
The easiest way to get to our church is by public transport. We are located right next door to the King George Bus station and three minutes walk from the Central Train Station. You can plan your journey using Translink

What to wear?
We believe that God is more interested in what’s in your heart than what you’re wearing so we’re pretty relaxed at Albert Street Uniting Church. You’ll see a wide variety of clothing, from those who like to dress up to those who prefer jeans.  Choose something comfortable and come and see us.

I can't use stairs - can I still get in the building?
An access ramp is located on the Suncorp plaza side of the church with access from both Ann and Albert streets, allowing easy entry to the building without the use of stairs.

What are our worship services like?
All our services are family friendly with our 9am service including Sunday School and fellowship morning tea afterwards.  Our 11am service often includes a baptism, welcoming a person to the family of God. Our 6:30pm service has a fellowship light supper afterwards. Two special parts of the service that may need further explanation are:

  • Holy Communion
    Holy Communion is celebrated mostly on  first Sunday of the month. This is a special ritual or sacrament remembering the last supper Jesus shared with his disciples before he died. A small portion of bread and grape juice are taken as part of the ritual. Gluten free bread is also available. In doing so, we also remember Jesus’ promise that he is always with us. We practice what is called an open table. This means that even though we recognise that traditionally this meal is understood as a sacrament for those who are baptised, in the Uniting Church all are invited to participate, and it is up to each individual how they respond. If you prefer to watch this part of the service, that is fine.
  • Offerings
    Offerings to the Church are received during our services. It is up to you whether you choose to give any money to the Church to help it pay for those everyday things like electricity, water and telephones as well as mission activities such as Community Meal, pastoral care and other related community support activities.
