  • Worship in the park at Point Cook

    With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions over the past month, it’s been encouraging to hear various stories of how our BUV churches are re-opening for in-person worship gatherings and ways they are managing the existing restrictions.

Pastor David van Wynen recently shared where they are up to with their re-opening.
