Hi Equip Church International,

We hope you and your family are well, blessed and staying strong.

We would like to update you on a couple of things and to share our plans for moving the church forward as restrictions continue to lift.

Firstly, a couple of housekeeping things:

  1. The Café/Kitchen rebuild is almost complete with the internal build finishing this week!  The external area is taking a little longer and is set to be fully completed by end of November.  It’s looking amazing and everything has come together so well.  It’s definitely a space to be proud of and we can’t wait to have everyone back and see it in full swing!
  2. Next week (Mon 23 – Sat 28) is cleaning week! During this time we will conducting a ‘top-to-bottom’ commercial / CovidSafe clean of the church internally and externally (gardens, concrete, carpark, buildings etc).  A mammoth task but we’re up to it!

Secondly, moving forward:

  1. Let’s Touch Base –  As of next week, should you wish to touch base, need support, or simply come and have a cuppa and a chat, a couple of our pastors will be available at the church each day (Monday to Friday) to assist you in any way they can. Please feel free to drop by.  We will be situated in the back building which is where our Training Services is.  Please access the property via the far end, right-hand gate.  Park around the back and enter the Training Services building via front or side doors.  Head upstairs to reception and we will be there to assist you
  2. Let’s Do Church! –  With the continued easing of restrictions and a further announcement to be made by Premier Daniel Andrews this Sunday, we are now looking at socially creative ways to begin bringing our church back together again each week – commencing Sunday 29th November!  –  The full details of this event are still to be finalized but it could look like a Drive-thru Meet the Pastors, stop and have a coffee and chat, receive prayer etc.  Further details to follow –  stay tuned!

Looking forward to catching up with everyone very soon.  Miss you all!
