COVID19 UPDATE

UPDATE – Friday 20th March, 2020

Following the current authorities advice, below is Gympie Church of Christ’s current decisions in regards to COVID19 outbreak. We are strongly encouraging ‘social distancing‘ across all our ministries and have made the following adjustments to our church program.

SUNDAY SERVICE GOING ONLINE

Due to the current advice around social distancing and indoor group restrictions, we will not be coming together for any of our Sunday Service. This will continue for the foreseeable future. We will be making our 9:30am Worship Service available ONLINE through our FACEBOOK LIVE STREAM. Please join together as a family or small group (common sense around good hygiene and health applies) as the service will still include a time of worship, teaching and communion.

This Sunday, we are interrupting our current series and will be looking at  “For Such a Time as This“. At a time such as this, there is a significant amount of fear in our society but we continue to worship a God who is sovereign and in control of the situation. We can continue to put our hope and trust in our Heavenly Father. We also believe this will be a time for the Church to be a beacon of light into our communities.
