Church & Covid-19

Public Services

We have re-engaged our Sunday services. We now offer a 9:00am service and an 11:00am service. Attendance at 9:00am requires proof of vaccination while attendance at 11:00am does not. Other aspects of church life are beginning to recommence and if you have any questions we encourage to contact the church office (03 5482 1105).

Prayer Book & Psalms Project

We are blessed during this time to have two great resources that will form the backbone of worship in this new era. These are the Prayer Book and the Psalms Project. At the beginning of last year, we handed out copies of the Prayer Book for Australia (if you have not received a prayer book and would like access to one, please phone the church office). In the Prayer Book, there are services for Morning and Evening Prayer and we’ll be encouraging and equipping you to use them at home, in small groups and even over the phone. At Christ Church we’ve also got the Psalms Project, our commitment to read one Psalm together a day. It may be that this is the season for us to dive deeper into the Psalms as a church!

Weddings, Funeral and Ordinations

These will still be able to take place, so long as they adhere to government requirements.

Other Ministries

At this time, we have hit pause on mainly music, Sing for Joy and Guild & Friends. Recently, our Parish Op Shop has opened again, but in a different location for the time being. Currently, the Op Shop is located in the Hall on the High Street side of the church.

Giving

We encourage people to give electronically where possible so that we can continue to offer ministry within the parish and beyond. You can make a direct deposit to:

Account Name:  Christ Church Anglican

BSB:   633 000

Account number:  140848581 

For those who can’t set this up, we ask that you set aside your regular giving each week and either arrange to drop it off at the church on a regular basis or hang onto it until regular services can resume.

Pastoral Care

Should you need any support or encouragement, please feel free to phone a member of the ministry team or call the church office to organise a pastoral visit. We’re always happy to talk and pray with you.
