Staying Safe in Risk Level RED


We are PAUSING in-person services for the next 4 weeks or when we return to ORANGE if that happens earlier.


We're offering the option of home-based clusters that can meet in-person, preferably outdoors. Our Sunday worship services will be accessible through these clusters or within household bubbles. We will offer a Depot Cluster as part of this. Arrangements will be notified weekly via our community email and Facebook page.


When in-person services at the depot pause for a season, we will offer home-based clusters that can meet in-person, preferably outdoors. Our Sunday worship services will be accessible through these clusters or within household bubbles. We will be maximising connectedness in the way we do this. If you would like to explore being a Cluster Host, please email us.


Here's how we're handling Sundays @ the depot:


My Vaccine Pass (MVP)

We expect that attendance @ the depot will exceed 25 people - therefore, in line with public health regulations, attendance will require a My Vaccine Pass for attendees aged over 12 years and 3 months. Children under 12 years and 3 months may attend without an MVP.


Arriving @ the depot

We're accessing the depot through the rear carpark and french doors.


Eating @ the depot

You will be able to participate in cession|chow from 5pm if you are @ the depot on Sunday. This will be provided in a boxed, individual serving.


Inside @ the depot

Our focus is to keep people safe, so here's how we're doing things inside:

  • Mask-wearing is strongly recommended - if you are in a serving role, mask wearing is required while you are serving. Masks are not required for leading singing or speaking from the front.

  • You'll be able to sit at tables with others - there will be options for physical distancing or sitting in bubbles

  • Hand sanitiser will be available at various stations

  • Toilets will be accessed via the hallway - we're trying to keep the hallway as a low-traffic area, so we'd love it if you could use it as toilet access only

If you have questions please email Brett.


STAYING CONNECTED

There are a bunch of ways to stay connected in this time:

  • Grab a Life Line - As we prepare our homes and households to be in the best position to face the Ormicron wave, our community is here to help and support. One of the key elements to have in place is a support “buddy” or family available to help in the event you need to isolate. The cession|care team is helping our community connect and fill this need. If you need a “life line” in place, a connection to have on your household plan to call if you need groceries picked up or other support if you and your household are isolating, then we can help. If you are someone that already has a support person in place, but you are willing to be a “life line” for someone else then we would love to connect you too.

Please email support@cession.org.nz and we will throw you a life line and make a connection happen before you need it.

If you or someone you know is in need of practical assistance, your village stands ready to help in whatever way it can. If you have a need for help please contact DaNae Reynolds 0225802582 (our Pastoral Care Team Leader), or one of our pastors Brett 027 284 2893 or Melissa 0212670958. You can also email us support@cession.org.nz


Philippians 4:6–7 (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
