Wednesday Midweek Service

Wednesday Midweek Service


Wednesdays 1pm


The Scots' Church Melbourne, Corner Collins and Russell St,  (Diagonally opposite the Grand Hyatt)

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”  (Matthew 11: 28 and 29)

Every Wednesday at 1 pm there’s a half-hour service for anyone who wishes to attend. The numbers vary (sometimes 10-20, sometimes lots more for special services), but what a lovely, supportive fellowship this is. Some enjoy the organ music and the hymn singing, some appreciate the contemplative atmosphere of our lovely sanctuary, some use it as a mid-week opportunity to “recharge their batteries”, some have grown to enjoy each others company, but all come in an attitude of worship – to give thanks, to look for help and guidance and to pray.

Once a month we have some very special services

  • Special guest speakers telling us about missionary work in Australia or overseas
  • The Grand Final Footy Service in September
  • Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper (at Scots’ Church Communion Season)

We’re always open to new ideas about how we can encounter God together, and support each other on our spiritual journey.  One recent development has been the chance to enjoy tea/coffee and cake at the back of the church immediately after the service.  Not everyone can manage to stay, some have to return to their place of work, but those who do have sensed a real shift in our sense of fellowship and belonging.

We have no idea who might be reading this – Obviously!  But whoever you are, if you’re anywhere near the corner of Collins and Russell Streets on a Wednesday at 1 pm, we’d love you to join us!


But I haven’t been to church for years


 everyone's welcome

I’ve only got 10 minutes!


 feel free to "pop in and out" 

I don’t know the first thing about Jesus


 we’ll spend time with you

 I’m going through a bad patch


 we care for others

I’m not religious


 the door is open to all

I’ve still got a few things to sort out


 come as you are


Thanks for taking time to read this, and wishing you God’s richest blessing,

David – Minister for the Wednesday Service
