COVID-19: Roadmap Forward
As restrictions start to ease and road-maps released for the reopening of businesses, schools and our State, it seems appropriate to develop a 'Road-map forward' for Devonport Church of Christ.
The below info-graphic is a Road-map moving forward for our church. We will follow closely the government's lifting of restrictions which will obviously help inform our decision making.
The info-graphic outlines four major steps moving forward for our church and also the guiding principles that will inform each step. There are also some other mini steps that we will need to meet before moving forward, for example moving to Step 3 includes ensuring that our facilities are Covid safe.
We understand that many of you are very keen to return to meeting physically in our church building again andalso accept that there may be some people who will not feel confident to return for some time. We must be gracious and understanding of all positions. What is evident though is that expectations will need to be managed of what an onsite church gathering will look like for the foreseeable future. It will not be the same! A marathon mindset is more helpful than a sprint and we should take a long term focus.
Our church is currently in Step 1 of the Road-map, however there are a few smaller groups currently in Step 2 under the 5 person visitor rule. This week the number of visitors to a residence will move to 10 people, therefore we will look at moving fully into Step 2 in the coming week.
