Worshiping Safe In-Church

Correct as at 14 December 2020

Attending an In-Church Worship Service

  • All services are limited to 60 at St John's Ballan, 22 at St John's Bungaree and 12 at St James' Morrisons.  Please be aware that if the limit is reached, you may be asked to come another day.​

  • Please do not attend the in-church services if you have been unwell and or have had flu-like symptoms in the past 72 hours. 

Worship Safe Protocols

  • Please apply hand sanitiser upon arrival at and departure from the church.

  • Please check-in upon entry.  We have to keep records of all church attendance.

  • Please keep a minimum of 1.5 metres from others you do not share a household with.

  • Please do not shake hands or touch anyone before, during or after services.

  • A personal service book for your use from week to week will be issued to you.  Weekly material will be placed in a recycle bin as you leave. 

  • Please sit at the designated points marked on the pews.  Do not sit directly in front of, or behind anyone.

  • Your seat will be wiped with disinfectant after you leave. This applies to everyone, so please do not be offended.  All used surfaces and door handles will be cleaned as well.

  • Holy Communion will only be offered in one kind to all communicants until further notice. Only the consecrated bread will be distributed.  This does not diminish God's grace received in Holy Communion.

A full list of Protocols and restrictions can be found on the Anglican Diocese of Ballarat Website.
