Coronavirus (Covid-19) update
Like the rest of the country and the world, Centenary Uniting Church is adapting and responding to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will continue to support our community, and this remains our highest priority, while adhering to the latest Government advice. As we have updates to this topic, they will be communicated on this page and in the weekly Centenary Life newsletters. (To receive Centenary Life, subscribe here)
Current status (as of 2nd September, 2021)
We are now gathering for worship at the church each Sunday at 8:30 am and 5.00 pm and allowing for 1 person per 2 sq metres as per current guidelines we can accommodate up to 127 people at our services. Our seating is also set up to ensure 1.5 metre spacing front to back. When you attend services at the church you are required to register your contact details which you can do on this website or at the church when you attend.
We encourage seating only 2 per pew except for family and social groupings ( social groupings being those who see each other socially on a regular basis ). We encourage you to respect other’s space and to use the hand sanitizer when you enter and leave the church.
- You should not attend services at the church if you are at all unwell with any symptoms related to Covid-19, if you have been in any of the declared hotspots (interstate or local) or been with anyone who has within the last 14 days. (An up to date list of declared hotspots can be seen here)
- Our morning service is also live streamed each Sunday at 8:30 am or you can view it or listen at a later time. Simply go to the live stream page of this website.
- You must wear a face mask in most indoor and outdoor spaces, including churches and places of worship. You do not need to wear a mask outdoors if you can remain 1.5 metres away from others. (See the Queensland Government website full recommendations here)
Advice from the Queensland Synod
Whilst services are able to continue, our utmost priority is the safety of our members. Some areas for consideration include:
- whether to meet is in the best interests of the safety of our members, their loved ones, and the wider community
- increased vigilance with cleaning, personal hygiene, and physical distancing
- any signs of illness, no matter how mild, the person should be provided with a face mask and requested to leave and seek COVID-19 testing
