    Keeping you safe in Orange

    We will continue to have our online service at 10am in parallel for the forseeable future.

    Please do not attend on-site worship if you are supposed to be isolating following a positive test result for yourself or a household contact, or if anyone in your home is experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, or you are awaiting a Covid-19 test result; please instead join our online service.

    With the changes the government have made to the law around the Covid-19 protection framework, it is no longer necessary for St Mary by the Sea to require a My Vaccine Pass for any purpose on-site, to either visit or volunteer, this includes St Mary by the Sea, the Hall, and the Community Shop.

    We still have up one small QR code for you to scan in if you wish. And we will continue to operate safely in ORANGE onsite, this means:
    • We encourage you to wear a mask
    • Doors open for ventilation – so wear a jumper or bring a jacket
    • The peace in sign language - with the option of physical sign of peace if the person you are exchanging the peace with is comfortable with that.
    With the shift from RED to ORANGE it is no longer necessary to be physically distanced,or for morning tea served at tables. Soft chairs will once again be used. Communion will be served from the altar rail.

    We would love to see you on-site when you feel safe to visit; and for those that continue to journey with us on-line, we appreciate the opportunity to worship with you.

    Stay in the loop
