'We aim to be a Christ-centred, caring community of believers. We aim to grow our faith in God through regular worship and the study of God’s word. We aim to touch our local community through our example, witness and care, and support the wider mission of the church.'
We mainly practise traditional worship; however, we do have services with alternate liturgies using All Together songs.
What makes us unique
Our church, which is local Barossa Council heritage listed, is a well-maintained place of worship that the members take a great deal of pride in. It was built in 1904 to replace the old Salem Stockwell Lutheran Church opened for worship in 1865, which was badly damaged in a flood. We proudly celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Salem church site in 2016 and placed a marble memorial stone at the site. We celebrated the 100th anniversary of the new Stockwell church in 2004. The history of the church is very significant to our area.
We are the only church in the Stockwell township. We see this as an opportunity to witness to and touch the lives of the local community through caring outreach. As a Christian-based fellowship, the church members are called upon to assist local community people in times of personal hardship and grief.
The church community is a valued part of the township. Each Christmas and Easter season we have letterbox drops with a message and invitation to the worship services. The Christmas Eve service involves children from our congregation and from the local community who present the Christmas story. This service regularly sees an attendance of 75 or more people.
We are actively involved in the Blessing of the Seed and Soil service held on a farm property. This is an annual event with 80 to 100 attendees in support of the local farming community.
While we are not large, we have a solid core of faithful members who are flexible, accepting and work very well together.
