Plan for Regathering

We are resuming our Sunday worship service in person at both City (Wesley Centre) and Ryde (Ryde Public School) beginning 15th November 2020. 

As previously mentioned, in compliance with COVID-19 Safe guidelines, we are only permitted to seat a limited number of worshippers (including children) in each location and social distancing of 1.5m is required.  To manage this, we will be phasing the return to in-person gathering and requiring people wishing to attend our service to pre-register via an online form. 

Here is the Phased Regathering Plan:

WIC City

The maximum capacity permitted in the Wesley Theatre is 196 persons, according to the NSW Health COVID-Safe Regulations. We will progressively increase the number of persons permitted attend our WIC-City Service from 15th November and Kingdom Kids will ‘delay’ their regathering for one week, so that we can ‘bed down’ our COVID-safe plans and processes. Kingdom Kids will be meeting in the Green & Pacific Rooms (which have a joint capacity of 32)

DIGJC will regather outside on the 15th November, before resuming their fortnightly rhythm of ‘Youth-Alpha’ (in the Smith Room – Capacity 32) and joining the Service:

Main Services will be Livestreamed, and Sermons recorded; and Online DIGJC and Kingdom Kids will continue to be available for those unable to regather in person.

WIC Ryde

The maximum capacity permitted in the Ryde School Hall is 57 persons, according to the NSW Health COVID-Safe Regulations. Given this limited number and separate building (School Hall) we will be allowing the maximum capacity from the 15th November.

DIGJC and Kingdom Kids – Years 5 to 6 will regather weekly from the 15th November, in the C-Block. However, due to resource constraints, Kingdom Kids – Kindy to Year 4 will regather fortnightly from 15th Nov.
