From this weekend, Sunday 17th October, we’ll be able to include some people face-to-face, whilst we continue to provide the best-possible livestream for everyone.

We will have three services on site:

  • 8:00am service – this service will be a dedicated VACCINATED ONLY service going forward.
  • 10:00am service – this service will NOT have Kidz Church but WILL be live streamed for those who are at home.
  • 5:00pm service – this service will have a Kidz Church program (with plenty of time outside).

All services for the meantime will require you to “book in”. You can do this by emailing the church (office@gymeaanglican.org.au) before 12pm on the Friday before the service.

For the next two weeks the public health orders advise that we may only accommodate in-person participants who are not required to ‘stay at home’ (due to contact with confirmed cases or venues), who are not showing any flu-like symptoms, and who are fully vaccinated (noting that unvaccinated children under 16 can attend if accompanied by a fully-vaccinated adult from their household.)

‘In Church Activity Packs’ will be available in the church foyer for children who attend church when Kidz Church is not on, or wish to stay with their parents in the church service.

Everyone must wear a face mask when inside (unless under 12 or exempted), refrain from congregational singing, and we can seat 70 people (plus workers) in the church.

Sunday 31st October, people can attend regardless of their vaccination status (this may change depending on state wide vaccination rates), unless they are unwell or required to stay at home.

Sunday 5th December, we can double the number of people in our buildings, remove our masks (when you’re ready), and start to sing together.

We would also like to invite everyone to join us for a picnic (on Sunday 5th December) in the church car park between the morning and afternoon services, from 11:30am on. We will be able to meet as a whole church family, catch up and celebrate all together. There will be lots of fun activities for kids available including a jumping castle and face painting.

So, whether you’re online or in-person, we are so thankful that we continue to be together as we travel the roadmap to returning to church.
