None of us are unaffected by the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic. Although we live in the relative isolation of Norfolk Island, we must still participate in the global effort to protect the vulnerable. Our church leadership has introduced “Covid Safe” measures regarding hand cleaning, food handling, and avoiding physical contact, to minimise risk of passing on the virus. These are ongoing. The directives that remain highly relevant to us are about hand hygiene and staying home if we’re unwell. We would greatly appreciate your cooperation in this – we normally serve by showing up at church, but in these upside down times, please consider whether the Lord is calling you to serve by staying away. We are also using technology to continue our fellowship during times of isolation. Above all, remember these words, take them to heart and draw near to your Heavenly Father who cares for you: “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”.
1 Peter 5.6-7
