Will: Hey, Will and Alicia Smith here from Connect Church in Caboolture. We are talking to you guys today in relation to our Prime Minister Scott Morrison who has just put out a release regarding gatherings of 100 or more which we are a part of. And so that we can still get together, still provide community, still provide connection, we are making some adjustments to the way we do services, including this Sunday [22nd March] and here are some details.
Alicia: So Sunday [22nd March] service will go ahead as usual, we will begin at 9:30am still, but the Connect Kids program will start at 9:15 until end of service. This allows that adjustment for that room and the space within the church to stay amongst those limits.
Will: We are also creating opportunities for some overflow sections outdoors in case we get over 100. So still invite your friends, family, still believe for people to receive Jesus. To allow you to experience our service, at least the preaching element from home, we have created some online streaming options. Connect via Facebook, via YouTube, these details will becoming out via email, so if we don’t have your latest email details, please contact us in the office, send us an email so we can keep you updated. So that means if you need to be isolated for any reason, due to your own health concerns of limitations, or if you’re experiencing flu like symptoms, please stay at home, lets honour and respect those guidelines that are there. That means when we come, keeping about 1.5 metre distance, not handling any food. We won’t have morning tea or communion. We are going to be doing our best to honour and respect and provide excellence in the services while we have the opportunity to be able to meet together.
So guys stay connected, be a part of this but also realise thonorhat while we are making adjustments and changes to how we are doing church and how we are doing life, so is the community. They are desperately in need of connection, desperately in need of community. What a great opportunity to be the church, so get active, share the love of Jesus Christ, however it is necessary and appropriate at the time. Lets make the most of helping people to experience the community we’ve had the opportunity to experience. Lets get out there be the church and be awesome. Continue in prayer. This is such a great opportunity to Pray. Pray for Gods favour, protection, guidance and the healing of God to come through for us to be able to connect with that.
Guys, looking forward to catching you, we’ll talk to you soon.
