The government has now started to ease restrictions on gatherings. They have implemented Step One of a three step plan.
This means we can start showing hospitality to one another by having up to five guests in our homes. Some Growth Groups will take advantage of this and will start getting together in person (bearing in mind social distancing and good hygiene).
At the Ministry Centre, we are allowed to have gatherings of up to ten people. However, since we can only have one gathering at a time, the Ministry Centre is still closed to the public. If you want to use the ministry centre for your Growth Group or another ministry you will need to making a booking through the church office.
On Sunday mornings the live-stream will continue at 9am. It has been very encouraging to have so many family and friends of our church watching live. Our youth ministries will continue to gather via Zoom until there are further easing of restrictions.
The Sydney Anglicans have put out a great document called Return to Gathering Framework. This gives a helpful perspective of what we might expect in coming months.
Whether we gather digitally or physically:
Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Hebrews 10:24-25
