Synod have released documents on infection control for your information.
Please click on the link to download "Guidance note infection control" here
and "Protocols for the control of the spread of COVID 19" here
I am also providing you with some links to pages on the Synod and Assembly websites, which in each case offer a series of links to resources which can be utilised for “doing church differently”, meeting online, or for emailing to members for their personal use.
Please look at these pages and make good use of the resources that our Synod and Assembly staff have gathered.
This page has “Tips for doing church online” as well as many resources, prayers, liturgies, and other suggestions
This page includes resources, prayers, and some helpful guides to Livestreaming on Facebook and to using ZOOM
This page lists Uniting Churches which are currently planning to livestream worship on Sunday
Please note also that the Synod is placing COVID-19 updates as they are produced on this webpage
Please keep in touch with our Presbytery staff about this important matter, and let me know if there is any way that we can be of assistance to you in the coming weeks.
