FAQ Regarding our response to Coronavirus
Below are some frequently asked questions regarding our response to the Coronavirus and the new online Church services
When will be returning to normal services?
As of August 7th 2020, the rise of cases and the return of stage 3 restrictions in regional Victoria has seemed to push back the possibility of meeting face to face, at least until the end of this year. We will be closely monitoring the situation for updates, and will aim to get back to normal services as soon as we are able. In the mean-time, our leadership team is working hard on coming up with new and innovative ways to stay connected and grow each other in our faith.
Why have we decided to go to online services?
Due to the current restrictions put in place, gatherings held indoors cannot currently take place. Online services are currently our only option for Sunday services.
How do I access the live stream?
Simply return to the main page of this website to access the latest link to the live stream. This will be updated weekly. Alternatively you can visit our Church YouTube Channel Here and subscribe and hit the bell icon for notifications. We will also be making the live stream accessible to watch anytime after the service has finished. Please note that there may be a slight delay between the finish of the live stream and the availability of the video to watch later.
I usually give by cash or cheque, how can I still give my offering
As the restrictions are ever changing, the best way to go is to contact the church office to find out when/or if you are able to drop your offering in to the church office staff members. If you are feeling unwell or self isolating, we ask that you consider one of our other methods of giving.

Will small groups and other activities such as adventure club and youth group continue to run?
Again, with the ever changing rules around restrictions Youth Group and Adventure Club may or may not be able to proceed. Both teams will be in touch with you as they prepare to run each group. Please contact Josh Cole if you are unsure. Josh and Andrew are in contact with the various small group leaders to work out which groups will continue to meet. Please contact your small group leader for more information.
How do I keep updated on future changes or new programs?
Please keep checking our website for updates. We will be posting any new releases regarding Coronavirus on our website Here. You can also keep up to date via our Facebook page for overall updates and Facebook group for member specific updates. We will also be starting some video updates through our YouTube channel in the coming weeks along with some new programs to fill the gap of some of our cancelled programs and events.
Our Church newsletter (Mainstream) will also still be available via our website here
