10.00am Worship Service

There’s something inspiring about coming together to worship Jesus! Our worship services are for everyone, young and old. Come just as you are, wear what you feel comfortable in, and expect to be moved by the love of God. 

Expect uplifting music, a relevant message, and stories of what has been happening in our community. Our services are usually one hour long. At the end there is a short break before moving to groups at 11:30. You can use this time to grab a free coffee or catch up with a friend. 

11.30am Groups for all ages

At Burwood Church we love gathering in small groups (have you seen our mid-week groups on offer?) We love them because they are a great places for making friends and sharing together. On Saturday mornings from 11:30am we have the following groups meet: 

Adult Groups

Go beyond the sermon in one of our discussion groups for adults. These groups share and discuss the message from the worship service, looking especially at how we can live it out in our lives. 


Find your way to our Youth Room to join other young people passionate about Jesus. Discuss the message of the day and hang out together. This group also has regular social events. 


This group is for secondary students to not only hear stories about Jesus, but also dig deeper into the Bible. The lessons are discussion and activity based.


The Juniors group is for grades four to six. Lessons are interactive and Bible discussions lively. A fun and practical space where kids love learning about God.


Children from grades one to three are invited to join our primary group. Kids can expect crafts, games, Bible stories and other fun ways of learning about God’s care for them. 


This group is for our littlest ones from babies to prep and features singing, dress ups, bible stories and learning how much Jesus loves us. Parents love to get involved too.

“…And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

What we believe

Seventh-day Adventists are passionate about Jesus. We want to know His story, to be in relationship with Him, to experience His love and to share Him with others. Our beliefs, worship, and service, spring forth from this.

Here is a snapshot of some of our beliefs

The Bible

We believe that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, tells us the story of Jesus. It is God’s authoritative guidebook on truth, salvation, and loving others. Through the study of the Bible, Jesus speaks to us and we grow closer to Him.


When God created our world, it was a place of joy, love and perfection. However, sin has broken this harmony, replacing it with pain, suffering and death. The cross is God’s answer. It is the centrepiece of His rescue plan. On it, Jesus died the death that we deserve and offers us forgiveness and eternal life.

The Sabbath

When God finished creating our world, he set aside the Seventh day for the purpose of rest, reconnection, and remembrance of Him.  In our increasingly busy lives, the Sabbath is Jesus’ invitation to spend time with Him.

The Second Coming

The return of Jesus will be the glorious climax of the plan of Salvation. Jesus Himself will descend from heaven, the dead in Christ will be raised to new life, and we will be caught up together with them to meet Jesus in the air. From then onwards, we will always be with Jesus.


Jesus has established His church with a specific mission – to take the good news of Salvation to the ends of the Earth. Jesus doesn’t just give us this mission, he also empowers us to achieve it. He does this by giving us the Holy Spirit who equips us with all that we need to be Christ’s effective witnesses.
