Worship at 9am 

Worship at 9am is a traditional service with organ and choir. The liturgies used are printed in full within Bethlehem's Service Order booklet. Hymns are chosen from the Lutheran Hymnal and Supplement.

Hymnals and Service Order booklets are available from the ushers as you enter the church. The weekly bulletin also contains information about worship.

A children's address is normally held during the service where children in the congregation are invited to the front to spend a short time of learning with one of our pastors.

This worship service is generally quite full so come early, particularly on special festival days.

Worship at 11am 

At 11am, a contemporary worship service is held each Sunday with a band and lead singers. The liturgy, songs, Bible readings and responses are all projected onto the wall using data projection.

Songs are generally selected from the All Together song book series produced by the Lutheran Church of Australia. The liturgy used is flexible, choosing from a variety of pieces of liturgical music.

A children's address is often held during this service where children in the congregation are invited to the front to spend a short time of learning with one of our Pastors.
