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 4 mdistancing.  This equates to about 80 people in our Church, so the first 80 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/  
  • The program of our Church Services can be seen on October Church Program  and  November Church Program
