We are the people who have been gathered together to God by the blood of Christ. His death brings us peace with God and unites us to one another in him. Though we may have to meet in different places for a time, in love we will do all that we can to express that Christ has brought us together.
The state government has indicated that the vaccine passport restrictions will continue for the next 12 months, though we hope that they will quickly be removed. The steps we are taking are planned for this summer, but we do so keeping the long term in view. We hope that these short term steps will help us with these long term goals for the growth of the gospel.
Starting from Sunday November 14 we will gather together across two primary locations. An Open Gathering will meet at our lead pastor Josh and Sarah’s house, a Vaccinated Gathering will meet at RecWest Footscray, and where it is not possible to attend in person or are unwell people can join online from home.
All gatherings will begin at 10AM each Sunday and be connected online to express our unity across these locations.
Our Open Gathering will be meeting at 1/30 Burns St, Maidstone. This is a 3 minute drive from RecWest. In addition to our usual great coffee and food to enjoy, we are making every effort to ensure maximum ventilation possible. Toys and craft activities will be available for kids.
Our Vaccinated Gathering will be meeting at RecWest, Footscray. In addition to our usual great coffee and food to enjoy, we are making every effort to ensure maximum ventilation possible. Our full Laneway Kids programme for those aged 12 years and under and creche will resume at RecWest.
We'd really encourage you to come in person if able. In this season we know that there are many reasons meeting physically may not yet be possible. We will have a number of us gathering each week for church through Zoom and you can join in using the button below.
We have COVID-safe plans for both open and vaccinated gatherings, and a COVID marshall who oversees these plans. Masks are required indoors unless you have an exemption. Both locations will have a QR code check in, though proof of vaccination is only required at RecWest.
Kids under 12 are counted as vaccinated and are welcome at both the open and vaccinated gatherings. Our Laneway Kids programme and Creche will resume at RecWest, and at the Allen’s house there will be toys and craft activities. If joining online from home, we can provide craft related to Laneway Kids via Zoom but unfortunately we are unable to provide a supervised Laneway kids programme.
Please join the open gathering at Josh and Sarah’s house if you are not vaccinated or would prefer not to disclose your vaccination status. If you are vaccinated and would prefer the Open Gathering at the Allen’s you are welcome to go there too. If you are unwell with COVID symptoms, please get tested and join us online from home.
You can contact Josh or Rick who are happy to help you. Or if you are part of a small group, you could raise questions in your group which will likely help your whole group.
