Welcome to Mount Pleasant Uniting Church
Dear Church members
The purpose of this communication is to let you know that we have made the tough decision to suspend all gatherings, with immediate effect. This includes the 8am, 10am and 5pm services on Sunday, as well as the Playgroup Sessions, Koinonia and Alpha afternoon gathering. In other words, there will be no services this Sunday and for the following weeks. Our Minister, Trevor, will be available for contact and we intend keeping the office open each morning as usual.
This decision was based on advice we have received from health professionals after yesterday’s escalation with community spread of COVID19.
We want to reiterate that we are not responding in fear, we are responding in love. Any measures we take will hopefully minimise the spread of the virus, assist our health system and hospitals to cope, and protect the most vulnerable in our community. Our congregation has a significant percentage of people in the high risk bracket
We believe that it is important to stay connected and support each other at this time. These decisions provide for us a very unique and exciting challenge as we seek to figure out what church will look like for, well who knows, possibly up to 6 months. Over the coming week we will inform you of the steps we will take to continue to live as a faith community.
Lastly, we want to remind you that God is on the throne. Have a read of Psalm 92 and be reminded that He is our shelter and refuge and He is our everything. This gives many of us extra time to spend with God and we encourage you not to miss this Sabbath opportunity.
Brian Gluestein, Chairperson Church Council March 20 2020.
We hold two worship services each Sunday from February to December; a traditional service at 8 am and a contemporary family service at 10 am with children's program.
