Worship at Trinity
We have missed being with you at Sunday Mass and at other parish activities. Being unable to welcome everyone back without let or hindrance, and being unable to return immediately to how we always did things, remains painful. We are looking forward to when we can safely open, while we continue to do everything we can to keep everyone safe and healthy.
RESUMPTION OF CHURCH SERVICES
It is very exciting that we can now resume Sunday services!
This Sunday, 19 July 2020, there will be one Mass only, at 9:00 am. It will be a Sung Mass in
honour of the Most Holy Trinity … “take two” at celebrating our feast of title, this time gathered
in person. There will be champagne, tea/coffee, and festive cake after Mass.
This Sunday, 19 July 2020, there will also be Evensong at 6pm, in honour of St Mary
Magdalen, followed by refreshments.
The usual Sunday Masses at 7:30 am, 9:30 am, and 11:30 am will resume on 26 July 2020.
We are required to collect advance registration for attendance at all services. Please below.
WHAT WILL CHURCH LOOK LIKE DURING THE PANDEMIC?
We are obliged to conduct worship and other parish activities under a mandatory Queensland
government COVID Safe plan. The plan’s key requirements are to follow health advice – which
includes “social distancing” and good hygiene – and for community members to stay home if
they are sick, however mild the conditions. Things may feel odd or peculiar or even
unsatisfactory. Everything that we need to put in place is to ensure each other’s well-being. The
happy consequence is that we can be at church, after almost four months of being closed.
More information about what church will look like under COVID-safe procedures appears later
in this newsletter.
ADVANCE REGISTRATION FOR ALL SERVICES
Please register by 12 noon on Friday, 17 July 2020.
We are required to collect advance registration for attendance at all services, including for
choristers, sanctuary servers, and volunteers. Each member of a household should register
individually. You only need to register once. This registration will cover all future weeks, until further notice. Registering does not oblige you to come each week! However, it will simplify and speed up the “checking-in” process for services.
If you wish to attend a service then we shall be obliged to record your attendance. This is for the
purposes of contact tracing should there be a COVID-19 case at church. We protect your
privacy by keeping attendance lists securely, and destroying lists securely 56 days after each
service. We shall hand attendance lists to Queensland Health when lawfully required.
Please email your first and last name, mobile phone number (home phone number if you do not have a mobile number) and email address (or street address) to the Parish office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Special occasions call for planning. The links below will give you information and forms to download for our most requested special occasion services. For those not listed here, contact the office
