SUNDAY SERVICES UNDER COVID-19 ALERT LEVEL 1
Given Wellington’s recent move to Alert Level 1 and keeping in line with the Government’s guidelines, from this Sunday we are going back to having a 9.00am and 10.30am service.
A few things to note:
Morning Tea will be served.
Communion will be served as two elements.
Contact Tracing is still important, so if you have a phone download the app and scan in, or sign in with the person at the door when you come to a church service. https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-novel-coronavirus-resources-and-tools/nz-covid-tracer-app
Stay home if you’re sick, report flu-like symptoms and do not travel if unwell.
Remember: It is important to keep tracking the places you visit by using the Government Contact Tracing App, continue to regularly clean your hands and stay home if ill.

SPOT THE SPACE STATION
Watch the International Space Station pass overhead from several thousand worldwide locations. It is the third brightest object in the sky and easy to spot if you know when to look up. Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and traveling thousands of miles an hour faster!
