Dear Life Chapel,
We understand that the reports regarding Coronavirus are concerning and we wanted you to know that your health and well-being is important to us. We are currently monitoring the situation closely and will be prompt to implement the full recommendations of the Australian Government to make sure that our church family is kept safe throughout this season. The Government has advised against mass gatherings of more than 500 people from Monday. We are below that number so we will be gathering however in this time we are implementing some changes to ensure we keep everyone safe at Life Chapel.

This also applies to anyone that has travelled to a high-risk nation or has been in direct contact with someone who has. The 14-day self-isolation will be required of everyone who has travelled to mainland China, Iran, Italy, South Korea as per the Health Department’s recommendations.

If you are unwell, self-isolating, or are diagnosed with COVID-19, then please don’t go through this alone. We would like you to let us know by email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can cover you in prayer and give you the pastoral care you need.

For anyone unable to attend our Sunday services we will for the first time this weekend be video recording our services and have a delayed stream at 7:30pm. You will be able to watch and join us in our amazing service via our app or website. There is also an opportunity for you to bring your tithe through direct debit. The details are on www.lifechapel.church click on ‘GIVE’ at the top left of the website for

Finally, let’s remember that how we live and the way we respond to any crisis is meant to be different to the prevailing culture around us. This is an opportune moment for us to share the hope we have in Christ to a world desperate for answers.
Praying for divine health and protection for you and your family.
