Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What should be our approach regarding vulnerable people, e.g., elderly, those not able to have the vaccine or those with medical conditions that prevents them from having the vaccine?

  • Our goal is for all people to be able to gather with others for care, connection, and church. The Gospel message highlights the importance for us as a church to focus on the vulnerable so we will continue to make this a priority.
  1. Will people still be required to scan or sign-in once we move to the traffic light system?

  • Yes, the Framework clearly states that contact tracing/sign-in is still required across all colour levels.
  • ‘My Vaccine Pass’ will be required to come to the onsite Sunday gathering. Children, 11 years and under, can come with their parents as the same restrictions do not apply.
  1. If vaccination certificates are required for church gatherings, what guidelines will be followed if a person refuses to adhere to these requirements and enters a church service?

  • We will communicate clearly with everyone outlining the requirements for the services and the options available to those not wishing to attend.
  • We will ensure everyone has access to some form of worship and fellowship, be it online, in person, or in a different environment.
  • Elders and Host Teams will be available at the church door to help with people who don’t have the ‘My Vaccine Pass’.
  1. Can vaccinated and unvaccinated gatherings be held in the same building but using different rooms?

  • We will look at the possibility of holding a service in another building on site.
  • We would need to complete a Health and Safety Risk Analysis to consider how people are kept safe in shared environments.
  1. How can I interact with other people, including the service on Sunday, if I am unable to attend a service in the church building?

  • There will be a Zoom café hosted BEFORE the service goes live by Pastor Abbey, with Christmas / New Year dates to be confirmed.
  • During the service, we have our Host Teams available to interact with you. If you have a prophetic word, or any word to share, you will be able to communicate this, and someone will respond to you. This is still being worked on, so details to come.
