Sunday is our 178th patronal festival and we will mark this by blessing our new icon of St Andrew at all our services this weekend for St Andrew’s Day – Sat@6, Sunday at 8am and 10am.

What a difference a week has made. our church will be able to accommodate 150 socially-distanced people for Christmas – 90 in the nave, 28 on the mezzanine level and 20 in the Pioneer Chapel (though some of the latter seats may be partial view) plus singers and clergy in the sanctuary. The limit on those registering has been increased so there should now be no problem registering for our regular services.

When you register for a service (apart from at Christmas) you will be booked in for all similar services until Christmas.

As Christmas is on a Friday, there will be no Sat@6 on 27 December and no 8am service on Sunday 28 December, but there will be a 10am service on that Sunday.

REGISTRATION in the usual way is necessary due to the restricted numbers and because we have to collect this data for possible contact tracing by the State government in the event that COVID returns.

Those without the internet have been contacted regarding booking in for their preferred service. If you can’t manage the registration, then you are welcome to ring me on 0421 321 321.

Parish Office

The Parish Office reopens on Monday 30 November (tomorrow) and will be available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10am – 3pm. Welcome back Angela!

BUT the phone has been messed up by Telstra and we don't know when it will be operative, so please contact me on 0421321321 in the meantime and I can pass the message on to Angela and she can get back to you.

At the Parish Annual meeting yesterday, the following were declared elected:

Churchwardens: Susie Douglas, Jonathan Hough, Dwight King

这个星期天是我们的第188个圣徒守护的节日, 我们将在本周末的圣安德烈日(Sat@6)的所有仪式上为我们的新画像祝福,以此来纪念这个节日—Sat@6圣安德烈;星期日上午8点和10点。 这一周发生了多么大的变化啊。在圣诞节期间,我们的教堂将能容纳150位会众 (需要社会保持距离)——90位在主堂,28位在二层,20位在先锋堂 (尽管后者可能只能看到部分场面),再加上中殿里的唱诗者和牧师。那些注册的限制人数已经增加了,因此现在注册参加我们的常规崇拜应该没有问题。 当你注册一个崇拜(除了在圣诞节),你将自动预订所有类似的崇拜,直到圣诞节。 由于圣诞节是在星期五,12月27日将没有Sat@6 ,12月28日星期日上午8点也没有崇拜,但在那个星期日将有上午10点的崇拜。
