  1. Our COVID policy for worship continues to be as follows, to be reviewed again by the church council in June.
  2. Mindful of the health-vulnerability of some members of our congregation and the uncertain state of play with respect to the pandemic, the church council has decided that we will continue to wear masks in worship, except for those who need to remove them when leading the worship, and for morning tea, or who have an exemption from wearing a mask.
