Dear Parishioners

Recent media reports have indicated that many churches are remaining closed for the time being, however, at St Paul's we have put in place rigorous check-in and hygiene protocols to enable our community to return to face-to-face worship.

We resumed our Mid-Week Eucharist this morning and our Sunday Eucharists will resume this Sunday, 17 October at 8:00am and 9:30am. Both services will be a Said Eucharist with organ.

The St Paul's Choir will return the following week on Sunday 24 October at the 9:30am Choral Eucharist and we hope to have congregational singing from the first Sunday in December.

The current Public Health Order allows for fully vaccinated people to attend a service of worship so long as you:
• carry vaccination evidence with you and produce it for inspection to a police officer or authorised officer if requested;
• check in with the Service NSW app or provide your contact details to the welcomers;
• follow the face mask rules.
Once we reach 80% full vaccination, we expect that our whole community will be able to be welcomed back to our services which we anticipate will be before the end of October.

I look forward to welcoming you back at St Paul's.

Peace,
James Collins
Rector
