CBC UPDATE   –   Monday 28 December 2020

Hi Church Family

 

As January is fast approaching, we still desire to worship God in person and online. CBC is open! For important and relevant insights for January please read:-

SUNDAY WORSHIP
OUR 9:30AM SERVICE is online and pre-recorded on the 3rd, 10th and 17th January where we will be hosting our SUMMER REWINDS series. If possible, we encourage you to invite someone from CBC to watch our service with you via our live streaming.

OUR 5:00PM SERVICE  will continue as normal and in person. There is no live streaming of the service, so we do encourage you to come along as we launch into a five week series ENCOUNTERING GOD.

If you are coming to church, please arrive early. When you enter the church through our main doors you will need to use sanitiser, have your attendance recorded and answer our COVID health question by our COVID warden. Once inside the church, we do need to remain socially distanced 1.5 meters apart. If you are unwell or have travelled overseas or any of our local COVID hot spots in the last two weeks, please remain at home.

CBC OFFICE
Our CBC office will be closed until the 18th January. You can however email office@ecbc.org.au and we will do our best to respond to your request. Pastor Andrew will be working through the Christmas and January period. January is certainly a good time for us to rest. I will be taking annual leave from the 28th December until the 27th January. Brod, our Executive Pastor, will return on the 11th January, Pastor Sam will return to the office on the 18th January along with our Office Co-ordinator, Ainslee.

We trust that you can have a restful Christmas and New Year’s break. I look forward to seeing you when I return to the office at the end of January.

 

 

In Christ

Lead Pastor

CBC UPDATE   –   Wednesday 23 December 2020

Hi Church Family

 

I hope this finds you well. We are really looking forward to our in person and on line Christmas Day Service at 9am. Our Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced today that restrictions for places of worship are unchanged. Given that we are subject to 4 square meters and based on our practical floor space we can only set up for 150 chairs. Therefore, for the in person 9am Christmas Day Service we are utilizing a ticketing system. TRYBOOKING is where you will need to book online early to reserve a seat. When booking, please ensure you select the number of tickets required for the number of people attending with you. Please use the links below to assist you for in person and online:-

If you are coming to church, please arrive early. When you enter the church through our main doors please have your TryBooking ticket available to be scanned to record your attendance. You will need to use sanitiser and answer our COVID health question by our COVID warden.

SUNDAY WORSHIP
OUR 9:30AM SERVICE 27TH DECEMBER:  This Sunday will be taking some time to express our thankfulness to our Almighty God and to engage in the word through Pastor Sam’s message on The World According to Antioch, from the book of Acts. Let’s come prepared to seek out our God.
If you are well, please come to church. If you cannot come to church, maybe you could invite someone from CBC to watch our service with you via our live streaming.

OUR 5:00PM SERVICE 27th DECEMBER:   We are looking to move our service to the car park! As we see out 2020 together we look forward to worshiping God together outside in a COVID safe way.

We really appreciate your patience and understanding as we have navigated a very challenging week. We are grateful that we will be able to gather together, whether in person or on line to celebrate Christmas Day.

 

In Christ
