About Lutheran Villages

Murray Bridge Lutheran Villages was first established in 1982 and has continually expanded to meet the needs of our growing community. We are a not-for-profit organisation and we reinvest any surplus funds into the ongoing development and maintenance of our villages. Our vision is to provide excellence in retirement living housing in an attractive, well-maintained, caring and safe environment – with a focus on wellbeing, people and embracing Christian and community values.
