Good news! With no community transition of COVID-19 in the past two weeks, restrictions have eased for church this weekend. This means we have plenty of capacity once again for everyone to come along to our Sunday gatherings.

We’d love to see you face to face at the Ministry Centre this Sunday:

8.30am – with kids/teen church (also livestreamed)
10.30am – with kids/teen church
5pm – Church@5

After check-in kids and teens will head straight to their groups. Remember masks are still mandatory indoors for anyone over the age of twelve. We’d also love you to stay and enjoy a cuppa with us after church.

Please note: the 1pm service is now cancelled. We’re so grateful to everyone who came along to this service to enable more people to join us at the other services.

We look forward to seeing you Sunday!

The NSW Premier announced new restrictions from today that impact The Lakes Church immediately. Three major changes are: 

1. The introduction of MANDATORY mask-wearing at church; 
2. A site limit of 100 worshippers; 
3. No non-essential gatherings. 

What does this mean for us?

Sadly GNW has been cancelled for this year. This outreach has been a wonderful way of connecting with our community for the past 19 years however GNW cannot take place this week.

Our Sunday gatherings will now be limited to 100 (as they were 2 months ago) and masks are now mandatory. We will continue running all three services (8.30am, 10.30am and 5pm) within these limitations. Our livestream will continue to operate at 8.30am, visit: www.thelakes.net.au/live

Our COVID Committee will monitor any further changes and consider how best to adhere to government requirements, while maintaining every appropriate opportunity to encourage one another.

Please pray for our community: that God will keep us safe from this virus, soften hearts, and continue to grow his church amidst these uncertain times.

Love
David and Ruth Sheath

We know this is a difficult time for many of us as Christmas plans with our families are affected. We hope you can join us on Christmas Eve for our Carols night and Christmas Day in person or from home as we remember why we celebrate Christmas. Let’s keep our eyes fixed on our loving Saviour and give him thanks for all he has done for us.

The staff at The Lakes want to wish you and your family a blessed Christmas. We pray that together we will grow in the knowledge of the Saviour’s love for us and seek to draw nearer to him through whatever 2021 brings our way. Thank you for walking this journey with us, we are grateful for every one of you.
