As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold the church’s leadership remain committed to ensuring that our response is:
- aligned with government and health agency directives and advice and,
- designed to meet the safety and pastoral care needs of the C3 Monash congregation and where appropriate the wider ACT community.
With the recent easing of restrictions:
- connect groups have gone back to meeting face-to-face again
- other, larger gatherings, such as the monthly Hour of Power prayer and praise nights, have been re-introduced.
All gatherings meet the square meters per person requirements and social distancing remains in place. We also continue to make provision for good hygiene practices with access to hand sanitizer stations and the completion of antibacterial cleans at all gatherings. Registration for larger gatherings is essential and can be done here (email@example.com) or via the registration button on the home page.
We understand that many churches have returned to Sunday services and church ‘as per normal’ while we, as yet, have not and instead continue to meet together each Sunday for church online. Beyond the impact that COVID-19 has had on church services and gatherings we believe this to be a new day and an ongoing expression of what God is seeking to do in and through His church – fresh approaches to discipleship and kingdom growth.
Many of our connect groups are running ‘house churches’ each week enabling small groups of people to gather for the online worship experience. If you would like to get involved in a house church contact the office here (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We continue to monitor the situation, assess risk, and adjust our response as required. For more detail here is a link to C3 Monash’s COVID Safety Plan.
