COVID-19

3 July 2020 – UPDATE

The Church Leadership have met a couple of times recently by video conference to discuss the process and timing for the Church to resume services and fellowship activities.

All of the leadership team deeply desire a return to worship, teaching and fellowship and we are conscious that many of the congregation do so too. We are also however, deeply aware of our moral and legal responsibilities to our congregation and community. As such, we prayerfully believe that the time to resume is not just yet.

There is no one point that has brought us to this decision; rather a combination of a number of factors, including:

  • the limitations of our building size and the current rules around floorspace per person;
  • the requirements for cleaning before and after every use;
  • the need to record contact details for all attendees; and
  • the prohibition on congregational singing.

We are in process of preparing a formal COVID-19 Safety Plan to inform our future directions and the leadership team will continue to meet regularly to work towards resuming Church activities.
