Covid-19 Condition Orange Church Service

We are now at Covid-19 Condition Orange, and will be conducting Church services using defined areas as follows:

  • the Sanctuary defined as a MY VACCINE PASS” area, unlimited attendees.
    • You will be asked to show your My Vaccine Pass when you enter the Sanctuary.
    • For Record Keeping requirements you must scan-in with ‘NZ Covid Tracer app’ or manually sign in
    • Masks must be worn at all times.
    • Worship Singers and Presenters while on-stage do not require masks … “provided” they maintain 2 metre separation
    • Although indoor events may be held with no limits under the NZ Covid-19 Protection Framework, our Conference has determined that “Specifically, indoor Events cannot run at all under Orange and Red.”
  • the Hall defined as a WITH or WITHOUT MY VACCINE PASS‘ area with up to 50 attendees (including children).
    • For Record Keeping requirements you must scan-in with ‘NZ Covid Tracer app’ or manually sign in.
    • Masks must be worn at all times.
    • Worship Singers and Presenters while on-stage do not require masks … “provided” they maintain 2 metre separation.
    • For Record Keeping requirements you must scan-in with ‘NZ Covid Tracer app’ or manually sign in.
    • Masks must be worn at all times.
    • Worship Singers and Presenters while on-stage do not require masks … “provided” they maintain 2 metre separation.
    • Events CANNOT be operated, as required by the NZ Covid-19 Protection Framework.

At no time during the Church Service may anyone from one area meet with or get together with anyone from the other area. Children must remain with and be supervised by their parents in the ‘defined areas’.

Attendance will require a ‘first-in first-served’ booking system for each defined area.

Car parking for Sanctuary Service attendees and Hall Service attendees will be separated.

Members are requested to wear masks at all times (the mask requirement is relaxed for Worship Team Members “after” entering the stage to sing and providing they maintain “2 metres” separation, but must be put back on when leaving the stage).

Maintenance of 1 metre separation during attendance is not required .
