Farewell Sunday: Oct 24

After 11 years of service, our Pastor for Teaching and Worship, Rev. Carolyn Francis, is concluding her ministry at Collins Street. Early in 2022, Carolyn will  take up her appointment as Lecturer in Baptist Identity and History at Whitley College in the University of Divinity.

Expressing gratitude to God for the gift of Carolyn’s ministry, the church will gather on Sunday October 24 to say farewell. We will do this in two ways: in a livestream service of thanksgiving at 10.30am and in a Zoom gathering at 1.00pm.

If you require further details, you can email the church office. Contact details are here.

CSBC during lockdown

We are committed to sharing worship together each Sunday.

When it’s possible to gather in our sanctuary on Collins St then we’ll be there! When this is not possible, we will broadcast a short service including prayers, scripture readings, a sermon and some music.

Each Sunday you can join in by clicking on the green CSBC ONLINE button to the right of your computer screen (or by scrolling to the bottom of the page if you’re using a phone or handheld device).

The service will stream at 10.30am each week but will then be available to watch at any time. We hope you’ll join in!

Spring in Melbourne

Despite our current challenges, the coming of Spring to Melbourne is the most wonderful sign of God’s continuing presence with us. Hear our pastor Simon reflect on this life-affirming moment for all of us.
