COVID-19 UPDATE 23rd FEBRUARY 2022
SUTHERLAND SHIRE AND ST ANDREWS LOCATIONS
In accordance with the latest COVID-19 updates from NSW Health, Horizon Church will be implementing the following changes to our services effective Friday 25th February:
Pre-registration & QR Code Check Ins
Pre-registration and QR Code Check Ins will no longer be required at our Sutherland Shire and St Andrews campuses.
9:30AM + 5:30PM Services
9:15AM + 10:45AM Service
Our Online Campus will continue to live stream our Sutherland Shire 9:30AM (AEST) Service. Simply head to hz.church/online for the details and to view live or on-demand. This is a great way to engage in church if you’re unable to attend one of our onsite services.
Masks are NO LONGER compulsory
Face masks are no longer required. For those who prefer to wear a mask, please know that you are welcome! These are also available at reception should you need one.
Congregational singing and dancing is allowed
Congregational singing and dancing is now allowed in places of worship.
Our COVID Safe Plan has been updated and remains in effect. Horizon Church has been approved as a “COVID Safe Organisation” and our staff have completed the Australian Government Department of Health COVID-19 Infection Control training and our volunteers have been trained in our COVID Safe Practices. We have appointed and trained a COVID Safe Team who have been managing our COVID Safe Response.
We’ve undertaken a review of our processes to ensure we are demonstrating excellence in our church environment. Cleaning frequency has been increased and our venue will receive a thorough clean with hospital grade disinfectant in-between every service. There will be no printed materials, offering containers or communion passed around during service. Individual commercially packaged communion packs will be available for collection upon arrival at church.
Hand sanitiser stations have been installed at our main entry & exit points and sanitiser is readily available right throughout the building so please make use of it!
HEPA air purifiers have been placed in rooms where fresh air ventilation is limited (this includes the ‘Basement’ at Sutherland Shire and both Horizon Kids rooms at St Andrews).
To maintain a safe worship environment, we kindly ask that if any of the following apply to you, please do not attend the service:
- If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 (eg: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, sneezing/runny nose or loss of sense of smell);
- If you have COVID-19 or are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test;
- If you are required to isolate by NSW Government for any other reason
Instead, we warmly invite you to join us online for Horizon at Home HZ.CHURCH/ONLINE.
Please feel free to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
