Church Attendance during Covid-19

From 11 October the lockdown is being eased and our St Ioannis Church will be open again, see: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/easing-covid-19-restrictions/70-percent

You do not need to book to come to our Church Services, however:

  • Anyone with flu like symptoms should isolate at home and be tested for COVID,
  • When you arrive you need to leave us your name and phone number or scan our QR code,
  • Masks need to be worn in Church,
  • We need to maintain 2 mdistancing.  This equates to about 160 people in our Church, so the first 160 to arrive can stay in the Church, those that come later will be directed to our hall, where the Liturgy can be heard and seen on a screen. 
  • Our Services will also be livestreamed on https://m.facebook.com/StIoannis/
