What does being church look like in the twenty-first century? How do we as a faith community engage people with God's love in our everyday lives? Here are some thought starters:
Churches and other places of worship, will be considered places of work so that services can be live streamed to the community. This will ensure that religious services, including Easter services, remain accessible to congregations. National Cabinet agreed that providing access to services is important for a sense of continuity and social connection.
Services may be conducted and live streamed providing only essential staff are present, the venue/facility remains closed to the public, and social distancing principles are adhered to.
Any church wishing to conduct religious services, including Easter services, must use the minimum number of participants required to deliver and live stream the service, which may include a priest, attendants, organist, videographer and sound recordist.
Please remember that live-streamed services are not open to physical attendance by the public, that social distancing must be observed at all times, that appropriate hygiene measures are to be followed at all times, and that a strong awareness of the Federal Government’s advice about those who are most at risk be taken into consideration.
