COVID 19 COMMITTEE & RE-OPENING
Christ Church formed a Covid 19 committee made up of Bill Howard and Margaret Elsey to look at what the Diocese, Health Department and Work Safe are saying. Policies and plans for re-opening of the Church, Op Shop, hire of hall and children’s ministry are in place with permission from the Diocese Parish Council. To re-open we need to implement these policies with the Government’s approval. Please be aware there is a lot of work happening behind the scenes working toward a safe reopening.
