COVID Update #19 – easing of restrictions in NSW Places of Worship

MESSAGE TO MINISTERS, HOME MISSIONARIES, SESSION CLERKS, TREASURERS, COM SECRETARIES AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS

Dear all,

Please find here Update #19 for your information, which outlines the easing of restrictions under Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order (No 7) 2020, dated 5 December 2020.

We also link a copy of the new Safety Plan for Places of Worship, with your current Plan to be updated using this template.

Please do not hesitate to contact Peter Merrick or me in the General Office should you have any questions or queries about the current restrictions.

Please note that this change relates only to churches in New South Wales, and our colleagues in the ACT will need to continue to refer to ACT Government Public Health directions.

Please share this communication.

As this is expected to be the last Update before Christmas, on behalf of the Moderator’s COVID Steering Committee and team in Church Offices, we pray that Christmas will be a time of joy, particularly now that we can sing in Church, refreshment in God’s Word, and relaxation with family and friends.

Grace and peace,

Jeof Falls and Rev. Andrew Campbell (NSW Moderator)
