Dear Church,

I am writing to inform you that sadly I have decided to pause our live church services effective immediately.

When we decided to reopen our worship service over six weeks ago our state and country was in a much different position in regards to Covid-19 than we are now. With what is happening in Victoria and growing concerns here in NSW, there are increasing restrictions and concerns for places of worship that make meeting together in larger groups for worship and community increasingly difficult. My concern is for the safety and wellbeing of you, our people, and also our public witness to the wider community.

I am encouraged by your faithfulness, flexibility and patience during this season. It is just another little speed hump in our journey together and the main thing for us as a community is to continue to Love Jesus, Love one another and Love our neighbour. Let’s continue to pray for our nation, especially Victoria and our world at this time. Please continue to join us online at 10am this Sunday as we seek to discover further and more deeply what it means to follow Jesus.

So while I will not now see you physically on Sunday I do hope that you will continue to gather with us around the Bible and Jesus.

Thanks for your patience and I’ll talk more next week.
