    Christmas Services

    We are grateful that we can hold in person Services this Christmas

    RED Traffic Light for means some necessary changes to ensure that we keep people safe and comply with the guidance from the Government and Diocese. Red limits our capacity to 70 allocated seats, and you will need to book/RSVP by TXTing or phoning Dion on 0211378624. Our capacity is 70 people. You will get ticked off of a RSVP list at the door. You will need to show your "My Vaccine Pass" and scan in with the "NZ Covid Tracer APP" or fill in a contact tracing card.

    If you miss out on a seat, or do not have a "My Vaccine Pass" there are online services listed below. Please RSVP/Book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Once we are full no more places can be allocated. Likewise if your plans change and you can not attend please let us know so we can utilise your seat(s). Please do not attend if you or anyone in your bubble is unwell or awaiting a Covid test result.

    When attending you will need to move to your seats as soon as you have scanned yourself in and had your Covid Vaccine Pass scanned. Please do not congregate in the entrance or outside. We are required to maintain 1 meter social distancing.

    Thanks for your understanding, Dion
