Coming out of Lockdown update
Your Church Council COVID Reference Group is supporting the Worship Committee to trial a small worship gathering at BUC in the next few weeks. This will initially be by invitation only as we prepare for and move towards open gatherings. A number of friends in our worshipping community are without access to technology and have been unable to join the weekly Worship services on-line during lock-down restrictions. We hope this will be a small beginning to reconnecting in fellowship with each other as the restrictions are lifted. We are working together to keep everyone safe. Contact Ian Ferguson, 0438 547 842, for more information.
