Our prayer is that all who follow our Facebook page or read this here on our Website are, and will stay, safe and well during these difficult and strange times. If anyone needs pastoral care at any time, please contact us so that we might offer some assistance.
SPECIAL WORSHIP RESOURCES
During this time when we cannot attend worship services in our church building, weekly worship resources are being provided. They are available here.
Even when we are separated from one another and from our usual practice of worship, we need to continue to support the life of our church. If you are not already part of Giving Direct you can directly deposit into the church’s Giving Account or by going to a bank and depositing into that same account. If you cannot do either of those things you can still make your offering by requesting that someone come to your home and collect them from you. Just contact Lynda Dyer via the church office to arrange it. The phone number and email address are at the top right of this page.
For anyone who needs them, the details of the church’s Giving Account are:
Account Name: St Margaret’s UC Giving Account BSB: 634634 Account Number: 100025923
MESSAGE FROM PRESBYTERY WITH LINKS RELATING TO COVID-19: 23 March 2020
CHURCH ACTIVITIES IN THE TIME OF COVID-19
Because of COVID-19, the following activities on church premises have been suspended for now: Worship services, Good Faith choir practice, Stepping Stones for Life, Lenten study and Friendship Group meetings.
For our groups that meet elsewhere, such as Fork and Talk, we encourage people to make decisions on attendance based on their individual circumstances, observing recommendations from Health authorities regarding physical distancing and hygiene.
Some community groups who use our hall have already cancelled their activities and we are in conversation with others.
A number of options are being explored to maintain our church community connections and activities, including providing videos of talks, prayer resources and music on our website; and links to live streaming Uniting Church services.
Further information will be put here and posted on our Facebook page as things develop or change.
