Use these FAQs to help understand how in-person services will happen at NewHope during the COVID-19 season.
Are vaccinations required at in-person worship gatherings?
Consistent with the latest government announcement to ease restrictions for places of worship, we will not be checking vaccination status at our in-person worship gatherings from this weekend (19 Dec). Please note that our Kids Church workers are all fully vaccinated and we are continuing to implement updated COVIDSafe protocols. Our online worship will continue. We respect the decisions of each person as we negotiate different vulnerabilities and challenges in our families and various networks. We continue to pray for and support one another.
