This week has seen Greater Sydney respond to a serious outbreak of Covid-19, and we pray that it is contained quickly so we can resume normal life as soon as possible.
Due to the blessings of geography, our church is located outside of Greater Sydney plus Shellharbour, so most of the current restrictions do not specifically affect our church.
That means that the seating capacity remains the same, we’re allowed to still sing, and we can have meals together, like normal.
However, if in the past 14 days you’ve been in the Shellharbour LGA or further north, then the latest Public Health Order says that you’re required to wear a mask when you are inside our church buildings (including the hall).
So, it’s likely that most of us will be required to wear masks in church this weekend, so please bring along your own mask, or use one of ours if you need to.
At the same time, whilst we are less affected by the rules than other parts of Greater Sydney, we want to work extra hard at being Covid-safe, which means that we’re going to work harder at using hand sanitiser, avoiding handshakes, and trying not to mingle whilst standing up inside a building.
It’s also extra important to use the Service NSW QR Code to log in, just to make things easier in the event of any outbreaks down in Jamberoo… and of course, if you’re feeling even a little bit sick, please get tested and stay at home till the results arrive.
So, we’re still planning to do church as normally as possible, including Saturday dinner and Sunday morning tea… plus we’ll be broadcasting church via Vimeo and Facebook Live as always, which will help if you need or want to stay at home.
Graham Errington is our preacher, as he speaks on the wonderful topic of ‘Fellowship’ from Acts chapter 2 verses 37 to 47, which will be a real treat for us all.
Let’s keep praying that through this Covid crisis that people meet Christ.
