Register for St David's Midweek Service

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions masks must be worn Wednesday 13 January.

In line with the recent easing of COVID-19 restrictions our parish has signed up to the Industry Plan for Places of Worship. The Industry Plan is now the only way a church may offer gathered worship in any form. As part of this commitment we are following carefully the Health Directives provided by the State Government. We are requesting that you register to attend the Wednesday Church Service by 10am on Tuesday to allow us opportunity to ensure that we do not exceed our maximum of 50 persons attending the service.

We would request that all individuals must stay away if feeling unwell, even if mildly so. Please if your fall in the vulunerable category we would also ask that you consider remaining at home and avoid contact with others.

We are setting in place several changes that will assist us in complying with the Industry Plan. These include:

- The current maximum congregation of 50.

- There are 50 individual chairs and pews appropriately distanced in the nave of the church. People living in the same household can sit together.

- Face masks must be worn in indoor spaces at places of worship (children under 12 years of age and people affected by a medical condition or disability are exempt).

- Face masks need to be worn while singing.

- All liturgy and hymn lyrics will be displayed on the screens although singing is now allowed.

- Maintain Physical Distancing of 1.5m to the extent possible. This means we are to avoid shaking hands, hugging or kissing as a greeting, farewell or during the greeting of peace.

- Practice good hygiene habits, including the use of hand sanitiser before entering the church.

- Please avoid queuing or crowding at the church entrance.

We appreciate that our worship services will look very different from the worship services pre-COVID. We ask that you be patience with us as we work through these restrictions.

We are well placed - 22 November

Sometimes there is just no good way of sharing news. Last Sunday Bp John announced that I am to be appointed Rector of the parish of Mt Gravatt in 2021. At the end of what was a lovely service, this kind of news can land like a tonne of bricks. I am very grateful for the generous way people have responded to Catherine and me after this news even while expressing disappointment. I was aware that there was some confusion about how the Archbishop comes to such a decision. These decisions are not easy, but the prayerful process of discernment that has resulted in this new appointment makes me comfortable that it is right.  

When a parish is looking for a new priest, a nomination committee is formed. The committee is comprised of three representatives from the parish, three from the diocese and the local Bishop. This committee will generally approach a clergy person for a conversation in which all parties seek to discern if they are the right person for the role. If there is an agreement between them, they make a recommendation to the Archbishop. It is then up to the Archbishop to accept that nomination if he wishes. If he does accept the nomination, a formal offer is made to the nominee. The nominee then will either accept or refuse this offer. This process is the same that will now be undertaken to appoint a new priest to St David's.

Registering for Worship

Even with the easing of restrictions, it is as important as ever to register to attend worship. You can do this through our parish website or by contacting the office during the week. It is possible to register up to 5 pm on the day before the service. You will receive a confirmation email, but you do not need to bring the ticket on the day. If you have not registered, you may still be able to attend, but we cannot guarantee that space will be available. If you have any difficulty registering, please contact the office for assistance.

It will be particularly important to register for the following dates, including Christmas.

November 22 - 9.30 am Admission to Communion

December 24 - 6.30 pm and 9 pm (extra service in 2020)

December 25 - 8.00 am 

Annual Leave

I will be taking three weeks leave from Monday, November 23. During this time The Ven Rob Sutherland, The Rev'd Gillian Moses, and The Rev'd Owen Strong will assist in leading our Wednesday and Sunday services.
