By | Published | No Comments

Dear member of Willoughby and Northbridge, 

As we go through the last week of 2021, may you and your family be in the Peace of Christ.

As Omicron is spreading across greater Sydney fast, with many of our church members and families knowing, or being in contact with, others with the virus, I ask you to send your prayers to those who are vulnerable. 

As we acknowledge the place of worship must be safe and secure for everyone, in terms of COVID-19 safe, I believe many of our church members are hesitating to attend in-person worship. For this reason, inevitably our worship services would be reduced in size over the next few weeks. 

Please note that for safety reasons, I advise you our worship services will be changed from in-person to only online services until further notice. 

January services:

10 am service, Sunday 2nd Jan – Zoom and Facebook live streaming service 

10 am service, Sunday 9th Jan – Zoom and Facebook live streaming service

10am service, Sunday 16th Jan – Zoom and Facebook live streaming service

Please note – Evensong at Northbridge on 9 January is cancelled.
