Now we are holding gathered worship services on Sunday and Wedensday at 9.30 am  I know there are some questions about how watching our Worship services has changed. I hope the following is helpful.



The live-stream will be available to watch from 9.30 am on Sunday at the following links.

  1. On our church webpage you can follow the "Livestream" menu link at the top of any page on our site.
  2. On Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stdavidschelmergraceville where you can also Like our page to find us easily again.

We are all learning a lot as we use this new technology. We have discovered that some people are experinecing some difficulty with the sound levels when watching the service but others are having no difficulties. We are still adjusting things from the church end but the following might be of help.

  1. If the service has not started on your screen but it should have begun please make sure you have presed the play button in the bottom left of the video screen. We try to start the live stream a little before the start time so people can join before we begin.
  2. Make sure the sound is turned up on your device and the video is not muted.
  3. If you are still having difficulties then please contact us as you may not be the only person experiencing these dificulties.

This event has ended.

In line with the recent easing of COVID-19 restrictions our parish has signed up to the Industry Plan for Places of Worship. The Industry Plan is now the only way a church may offer gathered worship in any form. As part of this commitment we are following carefully the Health Directives provided by the State Government. We are requesting that you register to attend the Sunday Worship Service by 10am on Friday to allow us opportunity to ensure that we do not exceed our maximum of 40 persons attending the service.

We would request that all individuals must stay away if feeling unwell, even if mildly so. Please if your fall in the vulunerable category we would also ask that you consider remaining at home and avoid contact with others.

We are setting in place several changes taht will assist us in complying with the Industry Plan. These include:

- The current maximum congregation of 40

- There are 40 individual chairs appropriately distanced in the nave of the church. People living in the same household can sit together.

- All liturgy and hymn lyrics will be displayed on the screens although singing is now allowed.

- Maintain Physical Distancing of 1.5m to the extent possible. This means we are to avoid shaking hands, hugging or kissing as a greeting, farewell or during the greeting of peace.

- Practice good hygiene habits, including the use of hand sanitiser before entering the church.

- Please avoid queuing or crowding at the church entrance.

We appreciate that our worship services will look very different from the worship services pre-COVID. We ask that you be patience with us as we work through these restrictions.

You will receive an email confirming that we have receive your registration.

Moving closer with small groups

2020 - Article by Lauren Martin and Barbara Newton

This year we have faced many changes and disruptions as to how we have been able to come together as a community. Despite this adversity we have seen some wonderful connections develop between many members of our community, through actions as simple as a phone call, and gathering together with friends to watch online services. We have also seen the rise of the parish phone tree, phone services, bible study and gardening group, and more recently, in-person worship!

As we continue to grow as a community, we acknowledge the importance of feeling connected and a sense of belonging, particularly as we grow in fellowship and faith. One particular area of growth is through small group activities. By spending time with friends we are able to share our stories, and we are able to support one another as we grow in understanding, comfort and confidence, both as a community, and equally as important, as an individual.

Small group activities can take many different forms, and do not have to follow a strictly regimented series of meetings. After all a small group is just a bunch of people spending time together - and we must not lose sight of this! This shared moment may simply be a cuppa and a chat, or perhaps be triggered by common interest (such as our gardening group, or the Stitches group, or even our avid board gamers), prayer, meditation or bible studies. Really the list is endless!

A number of people have mentioned the desire to participate in small groups, with the desire to connect more with each other, and to come together in fellowship and faith. As we continue to grow as a community of fellowship and faith, we would like to reach out to each and every person in our community. If there is something you would like to share with others or are interested in please let us know (you probably are not alone in this interest!). If you are interested in leading or helping to lead a small group, or if you just feel like you want to connect with others, again we are here to help explore ideas and help make this happen.
