St Stephen's at Level 2
The Vestry has gained permission to open for worship observing Alert level 2 Government and Church requirements. We continue to do our part in the 'team of 5 million', we are doing well and we pray that a few more weeks will bring increased evidence of this.
We are excited that we can meet again and want to continue to care for all.
There will be a Zoom connection with the service at St Stephen's,
St Stephen's Service - some differences
Following government regulations for social spacing our church building capacity is 52 people.
Please don't be offended if your regular seat looks a bit different!
We will follow hand hygiene - entering and leaving the church could take longer.
We are asked not to greet each other with handshakes or hugs, this is to care for everyone.
We will be recording attendance for contact tracing, following hand hygiene practices.
The creche is open without toys or pens. There will be some material for children - please bring your own pens and toys.
We will not have Holy Communion this week, we are not able to gather for Morning Tea.
Please contact me if you want to talk about returning or these measures.
