Daniel Andrews update Announcement made: 3.25pm, 7th July 2020

 

We want to inform you of the following precautionary measures turningpoint Church is taking in relation to Coronavirus COVID-19. We would greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in these matters.

 

A return to Stay at Home restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire from 11:59pm on Wednesday 8 July 2020.

If you live in one of these areas, there will once again only be 4 reasons to leave home:

  • Shopping for food and supplies

  • Medical care and caregiving

  • Exercise and recreation

  • Study and work – if you can’t do it from home

 

​Key Points

  • The Prime Minister Scott Morrison says churches will be considered as "workplaces".

  • Libraries and community venues will be closed, except for essential public support services like food banks.

 

Are places of worship open?

  • Religious ceremonies and private worship can only occur online, with a maximum of five people to conduct the ceremony.

  • Funerals can be held with up to 10 people plus those required to conduct the service.

  • Weddings can be held with up to five people (the couple, two witnesses and a celebrant).

 

turningpoint Services

  • Due to the lockdown church services will continue on line, Children’s, Youth and Young Adults will remain on line as well as Connect Groups via zoom/cisco. No physical gathering will be held during the lockdown period over the next six weeks. We will keep you informed regarding any further changes.

One final note to emphasise, please do not let this information alarm or heighten any distress you may have surrounding recent developments of Coronavirus. Rather, our desire is for you to be informed and know that our heart is to protect and ensure the safety of all, so we can continue to worship together.

“Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.” Psalm 91:9-10

A.W. Tozer made this statement: ‘A scared world needs a fearless church.’ So turningpoint it is time for us to be fearless and lead the way forward.

Like a fireman runs to the fire, may we as His church respond to the crisis around us.

 

God bless you all, 

 

Pastors Phil and Norma Cayzer
