The Church Leadership Team tonight agreed that in line with the Government’s suggestion about non-essential contact, that corporate worship would again be cancelled on 11 July 2021. The situation will continue to be monitored, and provided there are no further warnings from health authorities, we hope that services will recommence from 18 July 2021, although we expect there will be some restrictions on numbers. The morning service, as usual, will be streamed live and the video available for watching when convenient. Please click the YouTube logo on the Video Messages and Prayers page.

This Sunday (4 July) there will be no in-person services (morning or evening) due to the uncertain nature of the current COVID outbreak and lockdown in South East Queensland. The morning service with be live streamed with only the essential people will be at church to enable this process. The morning service will be streamed on our YouTube channel as normal. Hopefully normal services will be able to be resumed shortly.

6 September 2020
The CLT Executive has decided to delay our return to worship until next Sunday 13th September at 10am. This is because of the on-going COVID19 situation that has occurred in and around our local community and to ensure the safety of our church members. This service will also be live-streamed. We still have some hurdles to overcome including the fact that we can only have 74 people in the church building and the cleaning requirements mean that we will only have one service, so no evening service at this time. We will be asking people to register their interest to attend the service, and are requesting people to remain home if they are ill, have cold-like symptoms, have compromised health conditions or other vulnerabilities. Members who come to the services from then on will need to sign in to ensure that we are remaining compliant with Government restrictions. We will be continuing to livestream our services and provide them on DVD for those who wish to continue worship from home. Please watch out for further updates during the coming week. Please wear a mask if you feel the need to.

You may have heard that the Qld government is allowing up 20 people to begin physically worshipping again. There are many restrictions still in place around cleaning, workplace health and safety, and vulnerable persons. The Oxley CLT has agreed not to recommence face-to-face worship until we have clear guidelines from the Queensland Synod.
