SUNDAY SERVICES – 2021

  • 7am – Said Eucharist
  • 9am – Sung Eucharist – led by the Lucian Singers

Currently face masks need to be worn in indoor and outdoor spaces (except in homes).

From 9 July 2021 the use of the ‘Check In Qld‘ app became mandatory as a part of COVID-safe practices for Places of Worship.

Everyone who attends a service or uses the facilities will need to have their details registered, including children and infants using the Check In Qld App. The Check In Qld app allows you to check in multiple people at the same time.

For example, if you arrive with family members (who don’t have devices), one person can register themselves on their device and then list additional people (including children) when checking in.  

If you haven’t already downloaded the app, all you need to do is:    

1.    Download the app at www.covid19.qld.gov.au/check-in-qld  – through links to Google Play or Apple App stores.  

2.    Enter your details once when you first open the app;  

3.    Open the app every time you visit us, select ‘Check in Now’ and scan our QR code or enter our unique code. 

4.     For our parishioners who don’t have a smartphone or aren’t comfortable downloading apps, we can take your details at the Church Entrance.  

You must not apply to or attend services if you are :

1.      Unwell.

2.      Have been in close contact with a known active case of COVID-19.

3.      Have COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath).
