Re-opening 31 October
Due to the lifting of NSW government restrictions, we have decided to return to meeting physically on Sunday 31 October, providing NSW reaches the 80% vaccination rate, and that the consequential further lifting of restrictions happens.
All three services will start back on that day.
The 10.30am service will be asking families to alternate, based on the children’s Sunday School class.
It will become clearer, closer to the time, what restrictions will be in place however we will need to observe the following for the time being:-
1 person for 4sqm (60 people in the main church building)
Wearing masks indoors
NSW government QR check-in
Observe social distancing (1.5m apart from other household members)
Hygiene observances (eg. Hand sanitizing)
Use of disposable cups and packaged food only
No congregational singing
Growth Groups are free to return to meeting physically after 31 October but that will be decided on a group by group basis.
Youth Group is still undecided. More information to come.
A new COVID safety plan has been approved by Parish Council and is available upon request.
As before, we ask that people who are suffering from symptoms not attend, get tested and wait for negative results.
We will continue to provide an online service at 10.30am every Sunday for those who can’t or are unwilling to attend. click on this link.
Please remember that these restrictions are not permanent and we expect a further lifting of restrictions in December.
WHO ARE WE?
St Mark's Malabar is an evangelical Christian church in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to see "Every person made new in Christ, mature in Christ, making Christ known".
Everyone is welcome at St Mark’s. You’ll find that we are a community of diverse people, from many countries, and at different stages in our relationship with God. Some are just exploring their beliefs, some are new followers of Christ, while others have known Christ as their Lord and Saviour for decades. From newborns to seniors we have groups and activities for all ages.
The vast majority of people living in Australia think there is a greater spiritual power, but very few are confident in their spiritual beliefs. At St Mark’s Malabar we love nothing more than talking with people about these important questions. We believe the answers are found in the person and work of Jesus of Nazareth and so we invite you to come and find out more about the Lord Jesus Christ, who is at the centre of, and the reason behind, all that we do.
