A word to those of you who Zoom to church on Sunday: Zoom is turning out to be a most useful way to attend Sunday service and it’s a thrill to see so many of you at church on the big screen. While we understand that some of you may be a bit ‘camera shy’, we would very much like to see you with us in church so would you please use your device’s camera so we can see you and welcome and include you as ‘real people’ rather than just names! (which is all that appears on screen if you’re not using your camera). It also gives us a sense of security and safety to know that behind your names that we are speaking to and engaging with you in person – and not some stranger who might be using the opportunity to hack the system. Thanks for your help and participation. See you on Sunday!  

Covid Response Update

Sunday services will continue as Vaccine Pass events for the meantime. The Parish Council will review the situation at its next meeting on Thursday 21 April.

Just a reminder that while you’re not required to scan in any longer, mask wearing remains mandatory for inside locations. We will continue to wear masks during the service though they may be removed when you’re seated and enjoying morning tea.
