It has certainly been an interesting week so we wanted to let you know a few more details on what is happening at Church to support the message from our Lead Pastors Shaun and Megan Smit. We encourage you to watch the full video.
Please know that your safety is our priority and we wish to exercise wisdom in everything that we do.
To clarify we will still be having Church this week but we will only be taking the first 100 people (which includes kids, staff and volunteers) into the premises on Sunday morning to comply with the government measures that have been implemented. Please ensure that you arrive early to avoid disappointment as when we reach the 100 mark we WILL be closing the doors and we cannot accept anyone else.
We encourage you to join us at Church however if you are not feeling well or have sickness in your body please stay home, as we will be live streaming the Sunday service as normal. We encourage you to still attend church online from wherever you are by following this link https://www.heritageoffaith.com.au/live/. Our Live Stream provides an exciting way to still be at Church and connect with us on a Sunday and we would urge you to check this out if you can’t be with us. Replays of the service will also be available on our You Tube Channel later in the day. Follow our You Tube Channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/hfccchurchgc/videos
We have enhanced our cleaning procedures with additional sanitation of various areas including hand rails, door knobs, chairs, tables etc….. We have been able to purchase hand sanitiser to offer each attendee as they enter the premises. We will continue with our adjusted procedures for both communion distribution and offering collection. We will continue our fellowship in the cafe afterwards and will be adjusting certain procedures for the tea and coffee service.
Our Children’s Church programs will be running this weekend. ALL children will need to be checked in via the info desk at the main entrance of the church upon arrival. They will then be shown through to the Children’s Church area via the main auditorium once checked in. The side entrance to Children’s Church will only be opened at the end of the service for pickup purposes. Additional procedures will be undertaken in Children’s Church for the safety of your children. If your child is sick, please do not bring them to Children’s Church as we will not accept them.
If we don’t get to see you this weekend, please reach out to us if there is anything we can do. Our Pastoral Care Team will be available to assist you. If you are sick or have prayer needs during this time, please ensure you let us know so that our team can be praying for you. You can contact your Pastor directly via their mobile phone or please call our offices on 07 5576 5534 during office hours (Tuesday – Friday) Alternatively contact us through our website prayer request form https://www.heritageoffaith.com.au/prayer-request/
We are monitoring the updates from the Government closely and if we need to make further alterations, we will advise as soon as possible through our various communication platforms. We encourage you to follow our social media profiles and regularly check your emails for the latest updates.
Finally, and most importantly, stand on the Word of God during this season. He is still on the Throne and is not taken by surprise in any of this. Resist fear and respond to God and His love for you. If you choose not to be with us on Sunday, we encourage to make sure that you do listen to the message live or via the podcast methods during the week.
Please reach out to us if you have any queries or questions. We love you church and we will see you very soon.
And remember WE ARE HERITAGE
