COVID-19 Update

Progressive Resumption of Church Services


Following the initial cessation of church services at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, rules eased a few months later enabling the Parish to commence a partial return to church services in July. Under current arrangements, services are held on a fortnightly alternating basis across three churches:

  • St Clements Merimbula on one Sunday;
  • services at Christ Church Pambula and St Johns Eden on the following Sunday.

NSW Government COVID-19 guidelines are being carefully followed.

Under current restrictions, people need to be placed at least 1.5 metres apart. This rule does not however apply to people who are living in the same household.

Capacity must not exceed one person per 2 square metres of space in the premises except in the event that attendance numbers are 25 persons or less.
