Come join us in person at one of our three Sunday services: 8:30am (Powerhouse running, info below), 10:00am, and 5:30pm!
Our service is being live streamed Sundays at 8:30am.
Starting Sunday July 12th we will be able to host congregations at our services! Our COVID team have been working tirelessly to get us ready using our COVID Industry Plan. In order to comply with this plan, visitors will need to register online to attend our service. This way we can keep track of contact tracing, as well as control number for social distancing. Each week on Monday a new registration link will go live, and registrations will close on Saturday at 11:59pm before the 8:30am and 10:00am services, and registrations for the 5:30pm service close at 3pm on Sunday. If you have any issues with booking online, please call the church office.
On Sunday 19th July we will launch our additional morning service! The service times will be 8:30am, 10:00am and 5:30pm. We will continue to live stream the 8:30am services as well. We look forward to being able to worship and fellowship together once again!
From Sunday the 26th of July, we will be trialling a new format for our Prep – grade 6 groups to help us comply with current restrictions, while still having heaps of fun and learning more about God’s plan for our lives and how we can grow in Him.
Parents will need to sign their kids in outside the front of the church and complete a declaration that they’re not sick/ aren’t awaiting a COVID-19 test/ been to any COVID-19 hotspots in the last 14 days etc. Our preference is that you would do this by scanning a QR code and completing a super quick checklist, but if this isn’t possible, there will be a paper sheet as well. Once this is done, you will be able to take a card and your child to Powerhouse drop-off at the front of the hall. There will be lots of signs that will make it easy to find. Powerhouse drop-off will be available from 8:15am. From there, the kids will be with their fabulous small-group leaders, as they move through different rotations including: worship & prayer, story & discussion, outdoor games & activity station. They will then return to the hall for a socially distant team super quiz until you arrive to pick them up between 9:30 and 9:45am (or whenever church finishes). The children will each be given a new laminated name tag, that they can take home and bring back next time (we will be using hole-punches on the tags as part of our program).
When you are booking tickets for the 26th of July, there will a separate ticket option for Powerhouse so you can book service tickets for the adults and Powerhouse tickets for the kids in primary school. Due to the amount of manpower and cleaning required to satisfy running children’s ministries under our Co-vid industry plan, we are only planning to offer Powerhouse during 8:30am service at this stage.
For those who are streaming services during this period, you will be able to stream a 15-minute version of the Powerhouse story and worship on the Sunday (from the 26th of July), this will be in-sync with what we are doing in Physical Powerhouse so children can pick-up at the same place when you chose to return as a family.
Unfortunately, due to social distancing requirements, we aren’t able to run Live Wires or Bright Sparks (preschool Powerhouse) during this trial period, but we will have an extended parents room in the crèche where you can take your preschool children during the service and watch the live-stream service on the TV that is mounted there. Parents are responsible for their own children in this area (since you are the only ones who don’t need to socially distance from them). All toys in this area will be replaced after each service and all contact surfaces cleaned (so only limited toys will be available for each service). Hopefully, when the restrictions ease, we will be able to work with our fabulous preschoolers again!
