Tickets will be required for our English, Cantonese and Mandarin services as well as our kids ministry, Tribe. This helps us manage numbers and remain COVID Safe.
As we seek to be a COVID Safe church, there are a number changes to expect for when we are together onsite.
Please take some time to read about what you will need to be aware of both before and during a Sunday service.
Please Note: Our return onsite hinges on having a sufficient number of volunteers to help with managing COVIDSafe requirements (eg. cleaning, checking vaccinations certificates).
If we don't have enough team, our return onsite will be delayed.
If you are able to serve in this way, please contact Larissa at email@example.com
The Victorian Government has required that those attending onsite services must have received two vaccination doses, and that we check the vaccination certificates of visitors upon entry.
We trust that in the future this will not be the case, but in the meantime, anyone who is unable to attend onsite for any reason will still able to watch our services online. For more details about watching online, click below.
At this stage, masks must be worn inside (unless you are exempt).
When you arrive onsite, you will be required to check-in via the government services QR system. You will see the QR codes displayed at entrances and on screens around the building.
On Sundays, our Connect Team will be ready to help you if needed.
We want to make sure our return onsite is safe for everyone. So we will be cleaning and sanitising surfaces between gatherings.
This included 'fogging' auditoriums with a sanitiser spray, and spraying other surfaces such as tables, door handles, seats and toilets.
Your health and safety is our priority.
We will need to make sure we are all standing 1.5 meters apart from one another.
Until density caps are lifted, seating will be arranged to enable appropriate social distancing requirements.
You will be encouraged to sanitise your hands at one of the many pump stations around the building.
We will no longer be distributing the elements for Communion during the service.
You will be able to collect a 2-in-1 cup as you enter the auditorium.
As we are trying to minimise the handling of items and surfaces by multiple people, we will no longer be collecting the offering during the service.
The safest and most helpful way to give your offering is online (see sb.org.au/give) However, there will be secure locations where you can deposit it onsite on a Sunday. This will be pointed out during the service,
All spaces will now have number limits - this includes hallways, toilets and lobby spaces. Please look out for the limits which will be displayed on doors and walls.
Coffee, cakes and other meals are available at our café after the services
Please note that we are working to adhere to the health and safety guidelines set by the Victorian government.
Things may change with their advice, and we will change with them accordingly.
