NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
Like the rest of the country and the world, Bremer Brisbane Presbytery and the Queensland Synod is adapting and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We continue to support our congregations, communities and staff, this remains our highest priority, while adhering to the latest Government advice.
We want to encourage our churches and communities to PIN:
PROTECT – taking into account latest health information, what does your congregation need to enact to protect its most vulnerable members from possible COVID-19 exposure
IDENTIFY– Have your Pastoral Care Team identify the most vulnerable members of your congregation/community and contact them to check in with them on a regular basis and see what support they might need.
NETWORK – Encourage congregation members to network and check-in with each other (and other people in their friendship network) through phone and social media. If they identify people who need extra support make use of church networks for support (eg who might live close to an elderly member who can pick up some groceries for them?)
