You may have heard that the Qld government is allowing up 20 people to begin physically worshipping again. There are many restrictions still in place around cleaning, workplace health and safety, and vulnerable persons. The Oxley CLT has agreed not to recommence face-to-face worship until we have clear guidelines from the Queensland Synod.

  6. All rosters will be suspended until further notice with the exception of the mowing roster and cleaning roster as needed.

More information is available on the Synod’s COVID-19 website.

The church has not made this decision lightly and realises that there will be significant impacts on the life of the church at this time. The Moderator Rev David Baker has shared a pastoral letter that can be accessed online.

Rev Andrew is planning to produce a short video message each week that will be accessible from this website. More details will be posted by the weekend.

In this very uncertain time please be assured of the constant present of our God who walks with us through this troubled time as psalm 121 says “I lift up my eyes to the hills from where will my help come?  My help comes from the LORD who made heaven and earth.”  
May we all raise our eyes to the Lord who watches over us day and night who keeps us in his constant care and may we know the love of our Lord Jesus Christ as he continues his way to the cross of calvary.
