COVID-19 UPDATE – 6th July 2020

 

Let’s Gather

 

We are super excited to announce that this weekend we are taking the first step towards live worship services in our Coffs location. 

 

On Sunday the 12th and 19th of July we will be opening the doors of our Coffs Campus to join our 9:30am online service. 

 

Then, from the 26th of July we will be launching live services at 8:30am, 10:00am and 5:00pm. 

 

Please Register

In order for us to gather within the current Covid safe requirements, It is essential that each member of your family who will be attending the service is registered, including children (that’s right, LifeHouse Kids will also be available for these services!) You can register at: lifehouse.net.au/register

 

Once registered, you’ll receive an email confirmation with a QR code. Please print this and bring along with you or simply have it ready on your phone for the Welcome Team to check you in.

Our COVID safety management will be kept up to date right here as well as on our Church App, which you can download here.

 

Please refer back here for all of the information you will need to know before gathering on site.

 

We realise that over the next two weekends limited numbers will be able to join the 9:30am service in the building, so I encourage you to continue to meet in homes, on your deck or in a park with others. 

 

We love you church and cannot wait to be together worshipping Jesus. 

 

Much love,

Lotty & Cie

 

 

Safety Measures

Like most activities in the community that are starting to re-engage, there are guidelines we must adhere to in order to maintain a safe environment for our church family and the broader community.  

 

Venue Capacity

As a place of worship, we are permitted 1 person per 4 sqm in the rooms of our church buildings. This provides ample space in our auditorium and kids spaces to host you in comfort and safety. Every room within our building has signage to display the permitted capacity of that space. You will notice some seats and rows are blocked out of service, so please sit with your household in the seats we have made available to ensure we meet compliance.

 

After Each Service

To allow our team the opportunity to adequately clean the venue between services, and to ensure we maintain required social distancing practises, we encourage you to get together with friends after the service at your favourite cafe, back at your house, or at one of our beautiful nearby parks.

 

Registration

Registration for our services is essential and in order to comply with Government guidelines your name and contact details must be provided. You may register at: lifehouse.net.au/register

Once registered, you’ll receive an email confirmation with a QR code. Please print this and bring along with you or simply have it ready on your phone for the Welcome Team to check you in.

 

Safe Practises 

LifeHouse Church has been approved as a “COVID Safe Business”. Our staff have completed the Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 Infection Control Training and our volunteers have been trained in our COVID Safe Practices.

 

We’ve undertaken a review of our processes to ensure we are demonstrating excellence in our church environment.  Cleaning frequency has been increased and our venue will receive a thorough clean with disinfectant in-between every service.  There will be no printed materials, offering containers or communion passed around during services.  

 

Please remember our teams will be maintaining good social distancing practices so will be avoiding hand to hand contact and hugs.  But not to worry, we will be there to greet you with a warm smile, a big wave or even a foot bump!

 

Hand sanitiser stations have been installed at our main entry & exit points and sanitiser is readily available right throughout the building so please make use of it!

 

To maintain a safe worship environment, we kindly ask that if any of the following apply to you, please do not attend the service:

  • If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (eg: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny nose or loss of sense of smell)

  • If you have COVID-19 or are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test;

  • If you have been in close contact with any known or suspected cases of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;

  • If you have travelled from an identified hotspot within Australia or any overseas location in the past 14 days.

Instead, we warmly invite you to join us online for Church Online, at home.

 

LifeHouse Kids

Kids is also back in full swing on Sunday 12th July! During this season that we’ve been meeting online, our Kids team has done an incredible job of preparing a safe environment. The Kids facilities including toys and equipment have undergone a thorough disinfectant clean.

A thorough clean will be undertaken again in-between every service.  Registration numbers for children will be capped to ensure we adhere to current gathering restrictions so it’s imperative you register your child to attend during your service of choice.

 

Church Online

Sunday 12th & 19th of July

We will continue to stream our Church Online services, available from 5pm each Saturday evening via YouTube, and Streamed on Sundays at 9:30am & 5pm from our website or app.

 

Sunday 26th July onwards

We will provide live streaming of the service over youtube from 10:00am each Sunday morning.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our pastors or team via the contact us page and we will be happy to assist.
