---------------------

Though the lives of all in the community have been severely restricted by Covid-19 and the resulting lock-downs, our church life has continued in a variety of enterprising ways.

"Zooming" was soon added to our vocabulary, and our Sunday Worship and many of our business and social meetings were conducted online using Zoom, Teams or Skype. To be successful, many activities required planning for three alternatives:  1. Complete lockdown; 2. Some freedom with maximum "distancing" and minimum numbers, or 3. Reduced "distancing" and greater numbers.

Because outdoors was considered a safer option, some of our earliest get togethers were "Pop-up Picnics" held in a local park, where adequate spacing was easy, and the fellowship was great. However, under complete lockdown Pop-up Lunches and Pop-up Dinners were held with laptop cameras arranged to display creative meals in our dining rooms, kichens or on verandas.

Our congregation soon learned that many people in our community - and around the country - were suffering hardship, so "Covid Caring" commenced. Our church and individual members directed funds to Christian Community Aid Service, Food Bank, Parramatta Mission and similar aid organisations.

Now that vaccination rates are higher, and lock-downs reducing, we are returning to more normal patterns of church life, and are celebrating our first face to face Sunday service, in church, with singing, on 5th December 2021 at 9.30am. We'd love to see you there.

PLEASE NOTE:

THERE WILL BE NO WORSHIP SERVICE ON SUNDAY 26TH DECEMBER 2021 (BOXING DAY)
