Church Closure until further notice
In light of the Governments restrictions on gatherings being no more than 100 this afternoon the NNZ Conference has decided that all churches will cease Sabbath services immediately. This means that church as we know it will not happen this Sabbath.
At this stage there is no indication of how long this restriction will be in place. Our Tauranga church leadership will be discussing how we can best serve our church family for Sabbath worships and we will update you on how we wish to proceed.
These are extraordinary times we are living in. At this stage we would encourage you all to be diligent in your personal hygiene and do not take any unnecessary risks. I would also encourage you to continue with your friendship groups and life groups where practicable so that you are keeping connected.
As church leaders we are working on ways in which we can continue to connect to encourage and uplift each other. We will keep you informed via our church Facebook page and email. If you know of anyone who does not have internet access please take the initiative to contact them and let them know what is happening.
Keep trusting in our Lord and Saviour and the hope we have.
